    "Real" Korry switch, about 2 dollar max.

    Hi All,

    Just to mention that a new tutorial here was added by Ivo de Colfmaker from Antwerp (Belgium) about a fully working "real" Korry-switch.

    "Real" is here:

    Latching ON/OFF positions and a realistic "travel-distance" between the ON and OFF position of about 10 mm. See docs at http://www.korry.com
    This is important because it gives the nice "irregular" profile of e.g. an overhead with switches in or out !
    All commercially available switches (except Korry... have a much shorter "travel-distance".

    Building costs about 1-2 U.S. Dollar at max.

    See: http://www.mycockpit.org/tutorials/showentry.php?e=34

    I know this is a very old post, so sorry to bring it up, but since all the downloads were re-organised etc, i guess this one got lost! Have you Hessel? or anyone else, still got this tutorial, as it would be great for people to have! Thanks very much

    Hi Jordan,

    After the re-organisation of the files here more files went into space here ...

    Nevertheless I have the file you mentioned.
    See your private post here for mail, so I can send it to you.

    All credist of this great design to IVO DE COLFMAKER from Belgium.
