how do I install an e stop button switch in a box?

what parts go where?

The button go on the main power going into your equipment. Cut the live wire and connect it to the button. The button should have at least 2 contacts to connect the wires.

Oh yes I knew that, it was how to mechanically put it into a box enclosure that I didn't see, but I got it now it's done. Thanks you all for comments.

Usually Emergency stop button a Red Normally_Closed Push Switch is wired in series with the main contactor (relay) coil of stuff that can kill or dismember you.
