Great stuff...and don't worry about your interest "wandering" from place to place in the pit..to an extent, working on the things you want to do at the time actually helps to maintain interest long term.

Ok it's been a while since I posted anything in my own thread :-[

Work and other fun things always tends to come in the way.

But I'm done some work.

I've been scouting Ebay and other places for switches.
Got a lot of the locking ones but still miss a couple. If anyone want to sell me any of this I'm interested.
3 pieces of 11TW1-1A
2 pieces of 11TW1-1F (or G)
1 piece of 11TW1-1E
1 piece of 11TW1-1N (or L)

Got myself a real Otto T4-CN211N :yihaw: Not cheap but it's real hard to find. I bought mine from Mouser. Just love it.

And I've done some painting done of the knobs I bought from Dunk, years ago :-[

The most work have been on the HUD. It's not finished yet but I'm real pleased with the result so far. A lot of work.

Looking at the great work you have done, not much work and other fun things happened  :harhar:

Excellent progress I'd say  :thumbsup:
Did you also drill the holes for the shaft and set screws in the knobs? (I still need to do that  ::))

I have drilled some of the knobs. I used a mill and a vice. I centered the knob using a caliper  and then I milled a 10mm hole with a flat end mill. The only problem is that my original plan was to make inserts 10mm wide and 6mm hole and then drill and taper those hole, but I sold the little lathe and I haven't continued with that work. But I will :lol:

It's not that difficult to drill the hole considering that the hole is supposed to be in the center of the bottom surface.

Yeah, up till now (for some 2 years  :-[) I dreaded drilling the shaft hole, because it has to be perfectly centered else the knob will "wobble" when you rotate it.
In Biohazard's thread is a tool that Biohazard got from has dad (IIRC). It was hand-made by his dad ... so not available in a shop. But I found an easy method (that's why I am posting it here  :whistle:)

Hi chnil71,

that is the tool for centering. It is the same principle that henks link describe.
