Tool activated vacuuming now within reach of the masses

Review Summary

Sometimes you need to be able to turn on a vacuum when you turn on a tool. But depending on their relative locations that can be a bit of a drag. The I-Socket lets you plug in the tool and the vacuum and then plug the box into the wall. Leave the power switch on the vacuum set to 'ON' and leave it alone. When you turn on the tool the vacuum automatically turns on. But when you turn the tool off the i-Socket does a seven-count and then turns off the vacuum.
This is genius, as this lets the vacuum evacuate the last bits of dust or shavings from the tool and from down the length of the hose. I've got three of these, inserted between three different tools and their small dust collection units. And it absolutely rocks. Definitely recommended!
