schadow switch mounting information

In the 70’s and into the 90’s WBS used a Schadow switch in almost every product they built. Different buttons required different offsets so “GOLDEN RULES” of design were made up so each engineer was on the same page. I found two of those pages the other day and was fascinated. These drawings are both done by hand and are admirable.

I’ve been building cables for over 15 years now and I’ve finally created a small calculator to estimate the costs of making an XLR cable. In the process, I am now offering cable construction services to help pay for going back to school.

The prices are very competitive while the quality is second to none.

If you’re interested in getting a quote, please send me an email and I’ll shoot you the excel calculator.
