I must of go a bad switch because one broke instantly and wont click open anymore. The other one is fine. I opened it up and looks like the metal spring doesn't hold tension anymore. And there sold out damn.

Default Re: Manly Dig Switches

they are used to make up mechanical dig switches.
with a small servo and these switches you can cut the power to a motor or both motors
and also short the motor wires to lock it up and create a drag brake.

there are threads that explain how to make these dig switches for either one or two motor control.
these were in use before the electronic dig switches were developed.
