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

Don:  I'd be interested in a bracket for permanent mounting ... not just alignment.  You might consider over-sizing it in one or both dimensions and then letting builders trim it down to fit their particular application.  The critical dimensions are the interior and mounting holes themselves; the outer perimeter (dimensions, shape) much less so.

How thick a plate are you intending to use?

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.

Did someone develop a switch frame (or std. Process) for maintainibg alignment, as I solder these switches?
