Introduction: Cut Here Door - the Portal to Creativity.

So, i work in a studio, we do alot of artworking, we're all creative types.

The actual studio is pretty nice, we have our own fridge, we all have decent computers, but recently we had the end wall put in place. Which for a few months has been rather bare.

I found this 'window cut outs' of some printed folder we had been doing, and thus, the Cut Here Door was invented.

I used a simple plumb line to get it all straight (a pair of hefty paper scissors, and some string)

I measured one of our doors for size, then went about sticking the small bits of card to the wall using double sided tape.

I then cut out a large pair of scissors from one of the folders to match.

I almost got to work at SLAC... ~.~

But that's not my concern right now...do you have any idea what you call that kind of switch panel? I've been wanting one for a while now for a project, but I have no idea at all what to search for beyond "large yellow box with big clicky buttons." Google has not been forthcoming with that description.

Is that from a place you've worked on? Or did you ~~steal it~~ do a google image search?

author
kelseymh made it! (author)kelseymh2008-12-19

It's from SLAC. I stole the image from one page of the safety training program we all take in order to work there.

We need pictures of SLAC. Actually, IDK about anyone else. I need pictures of SLAC. I'm suffering from SLAC imagery deficiency. :D

And I didn't even set rudeness level 5 :-)

Hopefully some of those pictures will be useful to you. I sort of like the "Virtual Visitors Center", but it's mostly words and drawings.

sort of only 1 switch, bigger, and pointless.

author
kelseymh made it! (author)kelseymh2008-12-18

Well, pointless is in the eye of the beholder :-)

There's technically only one button on our beam-stops: The middle one is a key control to reset it, and the top one is a red light so that security knows which one was pressed (in the 5+ miles worth of beamline tunnels).

Check out McMaster-Carr= items 66185K61 (pictured) and 66185K71. Pricey, but I think they're what you need for your next project :-)

Or Kipkay's instructable....I would like to again make the voice recorder from scratch (with the chip) but it is getting harder to find one that is not a surface mount (SOT) package.....I can't solder those

author
Lithium Rain made it! (author)Lithium Rain2008-12-19

I have this humongous flat red switch from an ooooold computer (386, I think). I will install it as the switch to something awesome someday. I just can't figure out what. Maybe my car. Or a light switch. Hmm.
