Default Re: Brake..Motor kill switch.

I like the idea and the resourcefulness used to bring it to the finished stage. Sweet, simple, and Cheap.

On the "cherry" switch. If any of us were hunting for a switch like it while we scavenged thru old washers or dryers, about where would one of these be found. If we purchased one new would we ask for a "cherry switch" or is there a
proper name for it ? Could you post a photo of one ?

It's just my guess on killing a 2 cycle frame motor with a 6:1 compression ratio
that the engine would endure the demand of occasional emergency stops. It is afterall just for emergency conditions. As for clutch wear resulting from slippage from such stops I'd have to let others with more experience with these motors reply to that.
