    Magneto/starter switch

    I did some filing and hacking to get started on a 5-position Cessna style magneto/starter switch. I am now in the process of building a bracket to hold the pieces. Sure, I could buy one of these but I wanted an actual key and it's more fun to build it yourself.

    Done except for the wiring. The positioning isn't as strong as I would like, but it's a good first go.
