    Korry switch replica?

    We are in the planning process for a 767 cockpit. I have located a possible alternative to expensive korry switches. I'm wondering If anyone thinks its possible to modify these push buttons with a divider and 2 leds. I would need to add a small hole for additional wiring.

    I think this is the right form for this.

    Hi Conner
    I presume you've seen the Open Cockpit version here
    http://www.opencockpits.com/catalog/...ml?cPath=24_55
    15 euros each X full cockpit gets a bit expensive though. They do come with legends and leds complete ready to go. Alternative is of course to make your own. Do you have a cnc machine or access to one? I have a complete set of designs for a 767 cockpit including circuit boards and many 3D drawings which can be used for 3D printer if you need them.

    Unfortunately I don't have access to a 3D printer or cnc. I need to go in 50 50 on one so both the 767 and my 737 projects could benefit.

    This looks like the best solution. I will need to order the acrylic rod and latching switches.

    So this is kinda how I expect to install the home built korry's if I build them like iwik's link above. The only problem I see is the back lighting leaking around the switch holes.
    Great paint drawing for you guy's.

    He actually does say in his text "You need to paint the sides of the cubes black to block the light."

    Yes, to block the lights in the cube. My concern was the panel backlighting from behind leaking between the cube and the panel. I guess I could make some sort of shield back to the switches.

    Won't you need a flange around the clear plastic bit to stop it falling out the front? This flange would then block the backlight around it. You can see how I did it in the picture
