I've been down in the garage trying to test my USED Clemco electric deadman. It does not appear to be working correctly. Looks like im in the market for a new one. I was looking at the 1-2263-400 electric remote similar to the Schmidt pneumatic. Small and compact. What do you all like??

I've been using the Marco(Clemco) deadman on my sand pots and the Schmidt on my soda pot. I would love to switch over to electric but it would be pretty expensive to change 3 pots. I cannot believe there is not an inexpensive 12v switch I could rig into my system that would work.

Well, if you have been following my other post I have been looking in all directions to save money on converting my Schmidt to electric. I keep running into walls. The only reason I am keeping the post going is for guys like you. I have tried my best to find alternative ways trying to get the assistance of others on this forum.

I've been useing "Marco's kwick Fire electric remote control" see pic below.

Kill this is just a togel switch in a nice case, filled with silicone (the kind that does not short out power)

in the off postion, it is spring loaded in the center.

up / Dwn is on...

12 volts

I have know idea how much they cost as I bought both my pots with them as a package..

Well, after about 20 min into my blasting today with the Kwick Fire my thumb was killing me from pushing down that toggle switch. So..........Any one done this yet?? I know its not "OSHA" but my thumb didn't care.

If that triger is like mine it will activate when pushed up or down. What there is for that is a small wooden ball on a chain. You atach the chain to your wrist and push the ball under the triger. If you drop it it pulls out and for safety. I'm sure you can make something like that. You might avoid a tradgedy!

the ball or wedge slide under the trigger, pushing the triger up.
the chain is hooked to the little wooden ball (or wedge) and wraped around your hand so if you drop your hose it pulles out of the trigger.
OSHA satey.
(I wrap it around the hose so i dont loose it. half the time I dont even use the ball.)

it good on big jobs when you dont have to shut off alot.

the nail you got does the same thing
