So, back to the bench, I ordered three rugged metal momentary switches and made the prototype #2# out of flamed redwood that never made it to be a top of a guitar. This time I made it wide enough to accommodate toes or shoe tip on one button without pushing the others, and deep enough to prevent the box from tipping when pushed. It's working like a charm and looking WAY better than the usual black metal box design.
|The setup is a very basic wooden box with slanted roof. The intestines were soldered and attached before the bottom plate was glued in. A layer of foam from what used to be a mousepad keeps the thing from surfing around.|
