Hello, is there a tutorial on how to incorporate a switch into your circuit? I was looking at a few from Radioshack and didn't see any leads/wires to solder, so I was a tad confused. Thanks

A lot of small switches are designed to be surface mounted on PCB's ,others use pins through holes on PCB's .
Do you have a link to one you have looked at?

I believe that the switch is one of the most important things on a laser. It delivers the "feel" of the operation. It should be smooth, riggid, consistant, and easy. This is the switch I use on my DIY http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...r=1&origkw=switch&kw=switch&parentPage=search and here is my DIY blu-ray design http://www.laserpointerforums.com/forums/YaBB.pl?num=1206558192/15

If you are working on a pen laser, then you need one similar to this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...r=1&origkw=switch&kw=switch&parentPage=search and can be found on the "eject" button on a dvd drive.
