Question

I need advice on designing a button system please help


I need advice on designing a dual button system that turns on an air compressor and an electric motor at the same time. If you have any tips, advice, or suggestions please respond.

If this is using DC, you would just need to get the buttons and stuff at Radio Shack. As for the tri-pod, check out info in Soldier of Fortune magazine or their website.

Figure if using a 9volt battery, you would run the positive side from the battery to the one terminal on the first push button, then a wire would go from the second terminal on the first push button over to the first leg of the second push button, then the second leg on the second push button would go the the mechanism to allow you to fire the gun. You could use a key switch to turn off and on the circuit for the compressor. Here is a home made air compressor http://www.instructables.com/id/Home...-compressor-1/ You could probably refine it into something a little more hearty Here is another, but larger http://jason-jones.com/hobbies/airbr...ompressor.html

I just did a search for "home made miniature air compressor".
