ITW ignition system

Unread postAuthor: iPaintball » Mon Jun 25, 2007 10:56 pm

I'm currently working on a new ignition remote system for my combustion. Eventually I will use it on a hybrid, but I can't afford to build it right now...
anyway, I'm going to use a stun gun circuit mounted inside a project box. I will replace the stock trigger button with, what else, a big red button. The only thing I cant decide on is the safety switch. Which do you think would look better; A key switch or a toggle switch with a safety cover?

Both a key switch and toggle with cover would be nice.

If I had to choose, I'd say key switch. Not only does it seem cooler in my mind, it also serves the purpose of safety better. A stun gun can be a dangerous thing, and that added safety would be a good thing to have, just to make sure that people who don't know what they're dealing with don't mess with it.
