    Default My solution for the computer switch

    I installed an AB selector switch on my 1100 to keep the old guy from turning it off when reaching for the coolant switch! I used the selector as its different than the factory computer or coolant switches, just another level of safety in that regard ha!

    I did use my homemade knockout cutter to cut a hole in the panel, I made it back in the 70's because the standard knockout kit coesnt contain one thats the correct size. I now need to come up with a "catchy" name plate for it.

    All joking aside, it does work and keeps me from hitting the wrong switch inadvertently.........................

    Just make a label that says "The Correct Switch."
    Or, if you want to pun on the position on the panel, call it "The Right Switch."

    It is working out well though.

    I was thinking "Catastrophic failure"

    After you mentioned this I looked at the power strip I use for PP control, monitor and other stuff. I have it mounted along side of a rolling tool box for easy access. I ended up moving it as high as I could and using the top 2 switched outlets for the PP control and monitor.
    As it was I could easily bump those switches with my knee, vacuum hose or rolling shop chair .And failure would be next
    When you mentioned this I was like I never use those on machine controls so nothing to worry about. Wrong, my setup was ready made for bozo to crash it all.

    MD at my age I need as many things bullet proof as I can make them, this is one of the things that was on the list, I have hit the computer switch quite a few times over the years.
