    Hi,
    I am new to this forum so I apologise if I am wrong.
    I am looking for help with a project I have undertaken.

    I am trying to build a prop for a game.
    In this I want two lights fitted, one for each team, and some sort of switch in the middle that will be able to turn on for one or other team (but not both at the same time) and have a neutral for the beginning if the game where neither light would be on.

    I cannot work out the switch tho, I would prefer to use something big and sturdy, but I am coming up blank at the minute.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm a bit annoyed at myself for not being able to think of something.

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards,


    CORPSER

    The options that come to mind are a large center-off toggle switch, a rotary switch, and a key switch.

    If you wanted to go for added dramatics, a large knife switch would do the trick!

    I was thinking about the knife switch myself.
    Im not sure where to get a big strong one tho, and if I just lift that upwards and not connecting either side will that give no cononection yeah?

    You could make one!

    Here's a place that sells them.

    That's correct.

    That link in working, but I get the idea, it seems like it might be the way to go.
    I'm going to look into a few different options as well.
    Making one could be interesting.

    I'll keep you updated as to what I'm getting,
    Any more ideas would be brilliant.

    Thanks steve for the quick reply!
