    Hi folks,
    Has anyone used this switch machine? It looks good on paper and with power routing for a good price. :) :)
    Says you can use a maintained toggle switch and not burn it out!!
    I guess you can't use it with a matrix or CDU.....

    $8.90 ea according to the website. Has power routing contact built in (one set of leads), but if u can use a maintained toggle, that could also light your indicators. Or vice versa.

    Sounds like serious competition for Tortoise. I'll ask my LHS to get me one, I'm willing to give it a try. Heck, not much to lose. Thanks.

    I called my LHS and asked about this machine, was told he believed it was a direct sale only. Checking the web site, I see the price is 8.90 but the shipping is $10.00! Does anyone know of a place to buy one for less?

    These machines look promising.
