Single pole switch for bel on/off?

Single pole switch for bel on/off?

Postby tnt1234 » Thu Apr 14, 2016 5:07 pm

So I find myself missing one DPDT switch this weekend when I was going to wire up my next build. I have a bunch of SPDT though.

Actually, am I saying this right? I usually use switches with 2 positions, and 6 lugs. Will one with 2 positions and three lugs work?

I don't see why not, but I seem the remember having an issue with this once....

Thanks!

You need six pins to send the clean and effected signal separately across the switch.
All's well that sounds well.
