There are a number of people are interested in my Altoids Can Ignition Switch, so I thought I would post a few more pictures to help them out on there journey.

The toggle switch in is the off position.

Underneath the electrical tape is the illuminated momentary push button, and the toggle switch (or single pull single throw (s.p.s.t.) switch).  Also shown is the two binding posts.  I still need to draw up a schematic, but it is really simple.  The toggle switch activates the momentary push button, and the momentary push button activates the binding posts.

The safety is off and the Altoids tin is armed.
