MCP – autothrottle switch, part 1

The first attempt to convert a simple € 2 toggle switch into a solenoid driven autothrottle switch looks promising.

A pocket was milled in an 18mm MDF spoilerboard for stable fixation of the switch housing during CNC milling.
Two slots of 1.2 mm were milled at each side of the switch and a small 1 mm thick aluminum plate that slides through the slots.

To be continued as soon as the solenoid has arrived.

Used 12V solenoid
