  • Shop remote control

    When my remote control for the dust collector broke, I went looking for a remote control to replace it.
    They had a triple one for very littel more so I got it.

    Since the Air compressor and the HF 2HP Dust collector are both 15A motors with high surge current, I have relay boosters with 30A contactors and 120V coils on both of them.
    Shop lights are 5 4-foot shop light fixtures, all fluorescent T8 and T12 mix with Some LEDs waiting as replacements.
    Now all are within reach between my BT3000 and my router table.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

      Yes, for the main shop lights. Five 4-ft dual 40W fluorescent fixtures.
      I have two A19 bulb fixtures on a separate circuit that were the original lights for the garage on a switch by the small (people) door. I always turn those on when I come in.
      So I do have two independent, redundant lighting circuits.
