RE: [N8VEM-S100:5777] NKK Switches for Mini FP


I would be interested in 2 (two) of these brackets. Sounds like a great idea!
Don't have my switches yet- should be any day now.

Folks are starting to get the switches for the FP mini board and asking about a switch bracket.

The switch bracket has two important purposes. One is for the positioning of the switches when you solder them in. I've tried doing this without a bracket and it's very difficult to get them lined up perfect without some sort of jig.

I already have a quote from sheet metal fabricator here in town to produce one.
In small quantities it was $15 USD.

I'm thinking that I can do these on my mill, probably five or six at a time for just the cost of materials. I already have drill bits and tap for the tiny screws. I'm going to give it a try this week.

If your interested in a bracket please let me know so I can gage the interest level.

We may be to produce a few and pass them onto other builders on a 'loaner'
basis. However my original plan was to use the bracket for installation and as a strain relief in the chassis.

Please feel free to send along your ideas and suggestions.

Thank you.
