Vacuum Wiring Question

Does anyone know of a way of having shop vac automatically turn on & off when a sander is turned on and off? Such as a master/slave outlet. Or, some other way. I've been googling, but no luck yet Thanks

Buy one that has an auto socket built in
Buy an add-on auto socket controller
Reach down and flick the switch. This isn't a big problem for portable tools.
Wireless / IR remote control. You don't actually need automatic control of your dust ectraction, you need to avoid having to walk across the workshop to turn it on. Remote control is nearly as good as automatic control, and easier to arrange.
Build a controller. If you have nothing better to do, you're capable of doing it, and you rate your time as worth less than the notional equivalent on a Chinese production line.
