    Question re: New Dust Collector

    I just picked up a bigger Dust Collector to replace one that just doesn't move enough air IMHO.
    The old DC is 110 volts and I have a remote that I found at Lee Valley Tools and it works great. The new DC is 220 volts and I'd like to know if a remote of some kind is available for 220v items. Can anyone tell me where I can get such a beast?

    Thanks,
    .....Gord

    There are several available. I use the Long Ranger which is available from several WW catalogs and Woodcraft stores.

    Thanks, Tod, that looks interesting. But I got LUCKY; I just called a tool store that is going out of business and scored a remote for $30.00 (regular $65.00) so I'm feeling pretty good about that.

    Okay, maybe I'm not as lucky as I thought I was.
    When I try to use the remote the reset button on it kicks out and won't start the DC. The DC is rated at 18 amps. The remote is a Shop Fox H5397 220V Remote Dust Collector Switch. Can anyone tell me what amperage the switch is rated for? There is no information with the packaging and the people at the store have no idea. I haven't been able to get a reply from the manufacturer yet.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks again,
    .....Gord
