yes, a tutorial is in the plans for the electronics.

I have to find a switch that will work for my purpose, and that is easily available. in my original Therm I used a switch that I had scavanged from a Kenner Blaster.

I'm sure not everyone want's to destroy a blaster for one part ;D

What kind of switch is it? Could a sliding switch be used instead? Those are pretty easy to find.

it's a momentaty, tactile swich. I find it worked quite well for my aplication. I'll figure something out, I'm sure... I'm taking it easy just now since this project was several weeks in the making.

Got a quick question, where do you find the plans for the "teeth" or raised edges that you mentioned?  I've been looking everywhere.
