Tired of shelling out for a new switch each time one of these flimsy paddles cracks or breaks or pops out each time I accidentally pump into it.
So, 4 layers of hardboard and little time to spare and now I have a unbreakable safety paddle with extended size for EZ reach.

Very nice man. Now I want mine to break so I can do that. I like it. Cheers.
@Dusty56 that is tempered hardboard. Not hardwood.

Indeed sooner or later, it will become a necessity. I will be making a second one with some design changes. I will stay with “hardboard ” species.
