Using an SPDT switch in place of an SPST?
« on: June 19, 2012, 10:33:13 AM »
Is this possible? Would it involve jumpering the two throws together?

Most of us do use a SPDT instead of a SPST. Essentially, to use the double throw, just ignore one of the outside lugs. Only use the middle and one side lug.
