Festool midi foot switch
« on: July 13, 2017, 02:45 AM »
Hi guys has anyone come across a set up for the Festool midi Hoover in which when using the 18v system I can switch the midi on and off with a foot switch instead of having to go back and forth to the hoover switch.

Thanks in advance.

Or connect a lamp (need high enough draw, so LED one won't do) with a foot switch on the cord to the vac.

Maxsys not compatible with mini/midi if I recall correctly.

Not enough room for the receiver.  [sad]

Not sure about a foot switch (probably) but there are certainly plug in remote switches available. Seems like there must nbe a plug in foot switch that could plug in to a remote switch?

Of course. Glossed over that part of the request in error. Apologies.

I use a switch similar to cheese on my vac sys. I got it from Home Depot.
