    hi all,im wanting to build a small circuit that will connect two contact points to simulate a button press,would like to use a small pot to determine time intervals between button presses ,but it would mainly be in the ms region,is there a way to do this with electronic parts normally found in the home so as to recycle. all the advice is appreciated

    Explain the intended operation more fully:

    1) what is the load being switched?
    2) what range of delays are you looking for (ms, seconds, minutes, hours?)
    3) presuming the first "button push" is the actuation of a momentary contact switch, and the second is the "simulated" button press, do you wish to also preserve the duration of the initial button press?
