Hi all
is it possible to wire up 2 buttons (micro switches) to do the same thing when either one is pressed?cheers

Sure. You know those two wires that go to the first button? Make them go to the second button. That’s it. When either one is pressed, the wires will be connected, and the board will react like the button is pressed. Just please be aware that pressing or releasing one while you have the other held down will NOT do anything; it’ll still be pressed as far as the controller is concerned.

Happ uswitches are SPDT, so you can actually hook two of them together multi-way, but that’s an advanced technique :wink:
