Not a woodworking project, Per se, but there is some wood involved….

My two sons have need for 4 devices to share a single set of speakers… this presents a good challenge because of the switch that will be required. We’ll need a 4P3T, and finding one for less than $5 proved to be a huge challenge. I finally settled on one from Talon Electronics, a T-MEC switch was new, originally used in Soundcraftsmen Mixers. Bonus, it was designed for an audio application! The switch is advertized as a 4P4T, but it is not, it’s a 4P3T (which is all that is needed anyway). The knobs I purchased are not intended for the post on this switch, but I like how they look, so I’ll make them work. The stereo jacks are a Radio Shack part.

The front and back panel are clear plexi, spray painted on the backside. when installed, it will show the color, but appear glass like.

The finished product:

More detail at my blog, thanks for looking and stay warm!

Looks nice!

Are you showing front & back of the same piece?
... or two different pieces?

If the same piece, are you selecting 1 of 4 for In/Out?

What are you going to be switching?

COOL…
