Master Qui-Gon when you reassembled the switches were they just press-fitted back together or did you use an adhesive or other method to try and hold trhe modded switch casing together?

Maybe some epoxy or glue or heatshrink wrapped around it would keep them together? Or a little heat from a minitorch etc to fuse them?

I still havent received my TCSS order with my switches so cant try any of that yet but wonder if you think any of those might help keep them together?

I used 2-ton clear epoxy to keep the pieces locked together, .....just make sure you don't get any on the INSIDE!!

It's clear 2-part epoxy in a plunger/syringe.    Gooooooood stuff!

Nice! I've been thinking of doing some different switch mods.
