AUTOMATIC VACUUM SWITCH from Lee Valley runs a shop vacuum only when it is needed — in unison with a power tool. The switch is plugged into a regular 110-volt outlet, and the tool and vacuum are then plugged into the switch. When the circuitry senses the tool drawing power, the vacuum automatically turns on. The vacuum operates until six seconds after the tool is turned off to clear the hose. The unit comes with two 110-volt, 15-amp input cords — one 6' long, the other 18" long. The Lee Valley vacuum switch sells for $39.50. Contact: Lee Valley Tools Ltd., P.O. Box 1780, Ogdensburg, NY 13669-6780. Tel: 800-871-8158. www.leevalley.com
