For the price I paid, the Shop Fox isn't bad. It comes with 2 remotes.
I did have to have 1 replaced because it went dead within a few
months. I've had 2 units working for almost 3 years now.
Thanks to you and others who posted about this. I have a long ranger
which appears to be the only popular option for 220v. I've been wanting
something similar to run my shop vac. I think the shop fox is the
perfect solution. The best price I could find was $40 on Amazon
(Grizzley). If you can point me to a lower cost supplier via the
internet, that would be great.
I've had the long ranger for several years now and it has never left me
wanting more. It does not need line of sight with the receiver. I am still
using the original battery so they last a long time. The range is long
enough that I have never been out of range in my 22x22 shop. I don't know
what the limit is, I've never reached it. It is NOT shirt pocket size, so
you won't lose it. It lays perfectly on the center of my Bies fence. Has a
pocket clip, but that rarely gets used.
I use the ones from http://www.smarthome.com Since I run a pretty
hefty barrel type, I hooked it to a switcher which in turn starts the
dust collector. Mine was only $20 but I already had the switcher so I
didn't need to buy a heavy duty one. These use x10 technology. It
comes with a 6 button remote and a module that plugs in the wall. You
can turn on and off one device and dim the lights on that circuit and
then turn another device on or off. Pretty cool, I have the other
device hooked to my neon lights that hang in the window.
