|So I needed a lever if you recall, to be connected to the lab equipment to turn it on or off. I ended up finding this automotive toggle switch from Radio Shack for a few bucks. It was long enough, AND it's PLASTIC!!!!|
|After a few minutes with my Dremel, the switch was looking more thin, like a lever. This was a bit nerve-wracking, as I just knew I'd somehow end up breaking the switch off by being too greedy! It didn't happen.|
|Yet ANOTHER hole is hogged through the wall! Since the toggle was pretty large to start with, it required quite a bit hole to be drilled into the wall. I also had to cut away some of the bars off of the back.|
|And here's the voltmeter! It's an image printed onto white paper, with some clear plastic sandwiched in between to give the appearance of glass. The back of the meter is exposed so that...|
|....I'll be able to shine light through! How cool does THAT look!?|
So yes, I've become a bit stuck in the mire regarding this device, but in the end I believe it will elevate the kit to something unique and always fun to turn on and enjoy. Like I've said before, I'm getting a little older, and the odds of my passing this way again with this kit is unlikely, so I might as well make it as good as I can, since I'll be the one who has to look at it for the rest of my life! Anyways, more to come!
