    It looks good and may work for now. The switch cams will wear from being hit by the guide pins. This is especially true as the guide pins wear and become thinner and more knife like. There is also the mechanical shock of the guide pin forcing the switch open at a speed never envisioned by the switch designers. Add to that that RS is out of business and the parts used are NOS. I wonder how long those micro-switches will stand up?

    I tried to upload this comment yesterday. After about 10 minutes of "Working" it gave me an error message. Today I find that it did post. This site still has some significant problems.
