Mini/Sub mini switch
« on: November 17, 2023, 06:43:58 PM »
Just wondering when Brian and other builders spec mini switchs are they the ones listed as mini or sub mini. I know this sounds like a missing in action question but I see a few supplers listing sub mini switches besides mini switches. Is there a differance?

I generally link up the switches required in my build docs. I've only had a couple that use submini and they generally are not board mounted. The "mini" are just basically the normal sized ones, I guess.

thanks for the quick responce Brian. I am trying to order parts and came across the sub mini lable. I build out in the gagrge and don't have internet. I usualy don't need to look up most parts of your build docs and never use your hard work. Your sugestion is good advice. Thank you for doing my thinkng for me. See your brain is working just fine.

I may very well have misused the Mini and Submini labels, since I tend to think of the Submini as Mini, haha.

Well, they are both mini but they make the others for use in submarines so hence the name.
I guess they’re waterproof or sumthin…

Or or or, stay with me, because they’re smaller than mini. I could be wrong, I’ve never been on a submarine.

Probably (definitely) should have taken better care of myself when I was younger.

This made me remember from deep down in the crevices of my crusty decrepit brain, a toy. It was a submarine. You put soda powder into it and you played with it in the bathtub.  Can’t remember what I had for breakfast but I can remember a toy from 67 years ago.
