Push-button switch for older boards


Recommended Posts

My league played many games on old boards with the click inline switch (early 60s 600 field and a late 70s 660). Then I got the ultimate field, and everyone loved the push button control. 

So I made one for the old fields as well. Took an extensions cord, momentary switch, and a box.

Lined the box so it’s insulated

clipped the hot wire of the extension cord about a foot away from the female end

Doubled over the cord at the cut and inserted it into the box

wired the momentary switch into the cut in the hot line. 

installed switch in hole in box, and good to go. 

plug into the wall, plug game in & leave original switch to on. 

works great, and it allows you to pass the box back and forth between coaches.
