New power switch - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
wow, my computer is down for a day and this becomes a hot thread, very interesting. I've read though all the comments, but I think you guys missed one part in my original post, I need something *simple* and **cheap**. While those military style switches are pretty cool, and I have looked at the vandal series, I'm not really looking for something that nice, just something that works. I'll check out radio shack and auto zone tomorrow. Feel free to post the coolest and um...disturbing, err, I mean most interesting things you find.

Actually I believe you would wire the top or bottom 2(Depeneding upon what you want its default position to be). The middle is ground,and always connected,and the switch changes from the top pole to bottom pole when flicked. Therefore,default position would be 1 ground pole and 1 blank pole and when flicked it would be 1 hot pole and 1 ground pole. At least thats how ive always worked with them.
