    Nice find jack!

    Hardest part is selecting the right combination of size/torque/angle...

    Re: 737 start switch

    I think size and torque go together if I read well.
    In which case the smaller the better,(the cheaper) the start switch does not require herculean force to operate!

    Gents,
    there is a company in Germany, offering "Soleneoid 737 Engine Starter Units" for a reasonable price:

    http://www.simparts.de/

    I have bought several parts from them and Jörg Weinmann, the owner, is very helpful.

    Cheers
    René

    Very funny, guys....!
    Different price perceptions, different solutions.

    Anyway, I said in the post "Just in case someone is thinkink about building them"

    Nat, I have no idea, maybe ask them, should not be a mint!

    Re: 737 start switch

    Hi Marco,
    I am glad you like my start switch idea. If you have any questions about construction, Just pm me or email to trevor.wimmer@goldenit.net.au
    My email hase changed since i did that tutorial. And will change again early next year when i move again. It is not all that complex to build, just have to be patient.
    Kind regards
    Trevor Wimmer
