Default Home made Mag. Switches?

Mikes "MT Stringer" post got me thinking. Those mag. switches cost a pretty good chunk of change. So has any body figured a way to make one cheaper?

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Lee Valley sells some 1" that have a 30 lb pull that might be enough for some jobs. Or maybe use more than one. There may be sources for larger ones.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Chuck I have seen those on Lee Valley's web site. They have some great stuff that I like. All high quality I might add.

From your link, Mike...
"It’s a great magnet-science demo, but you’re probably not going to save money with assemblies like this. It's easier and less expensive to just buy an MJ-95 or MJ-150 and get on with it."
Well, that was a party poop.
