The Crossroads of the Aether
When I get the parts in the box will get the clock hands added which will be able to move to adjust the power output.
This box is a one off personal build for myself but I am also going to build a few more following the same theme and format.
Any help with this project would be greatly appreciated.
Using the micro switch is definitely an option with these builds. Finding the part to use as the actuator seems to be the problem right now. I have seen a few builds doing something similar floating around but I can not seem to find that piece that falls into place for the aesthetic and feel for it.
I have thought about using a touch sensor for the builds as well since I could then use just about anything for the button.
I was given the movement from a grandfather clock today at a local clock shop to pull apart and got some nice parts from it but nothing that jumps out as a switch. Hopefully something will shine at me soon as I start building.
Thank you for the link to the blade switch. I may use that for another project I have for the interior design of my living room.
If I understand your question, I believe you are looking for aesthetics over everything else. I agree with Regnad. Adding something brass that actuates a switch would give the look of Steampunk and the actual switch could set off a one shot switch circuit that could be the trigger for a behind the scenes activation for anything you want. Good idea Regnad! I love the brass tacks!
are you running a mosfet in them or are they just battery. if you go with a mosfet you caan run a tac switch. mounted some where on the inside. then using a bolt+spring threw the body or something similar to actually depress the switch.
