    I should have done this years ago!

    $30 at Home Depot. Don't know why I waited so long. I use the worktable/out feed table to do a lot of assembly, pocket hole drilling, sanding, and my dovetail jig mounts on it as well. I've been stepping over extension cords forever. Dumb me! This makes it so much easier and safer. 30' long, could reach anywhere if I needed it to.

    I use mine a lot. I put it near the overhead door (outside of where the door goes when it's rolled up) so I can easily run power to the driveway for things like vacuuming the cars or using a leaf blower.

    Rennie what's that thing that the GDO is plugged into? Is that a remote cut-off, a timer or ???
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I agree with you Rennie. I have TWO of those, in a box, somewhere, that I haven't seen in a few years. I better go digging. Safer is where its at.

    You are correct. It is a receiver for an inexpensive remote I picked up. It controls the shop vac.

    I have a couple hanging so as to service the whole shop for those occasional 'on-demand' power needs. I have lots of permanent power but, I sing their praises every time I reach for one. That will prove to be money well spent for many years to come.

    Nice, I love the one I put in as well, so very handy. My main dislike is that I only have one and not two
