So, I have finally figured out what I think should be the best way to turn a 2PDT push/push pot into a 4PDT push/push. I might be wrong though, but this seemed like the most plausible solution.
I'm going to glue/epoxy two mini switches to the housing of the push/push switch part of the pot. One on each side, with the angled actuators being pushed out when the push/push is in the down position. For this to work, I have to cut holes on each side of the housing, so that the actuators can make contact with the red plastic cube that moves up and down inside the push/push switch housing.
1. What's the best way to open the bottom of the housing without damaging it? I've tried it, but it's really hard without bending the whole housing or damaging the little tabs that the bottom snap in to.
2. How do I best make a cut out in the metal like marked on the last picture? The metal is 0.5 mm thick. Drilling? Cutting and then sanding?
3. Is epoxy better than glue to secure the plastic mini switches to the metal housing?
