Oh and by the way, this is my first instructable so any comments would be welcome.
Step 1: Tools and Parts.
soldering iron holder
solder sucky thing (don't know what its called)
multi-meter (although i don't actually think i used it but thought i might so took a photo of it)
Paddle lever switch or something similar
c.d. or d.v.d
motor or LED
Step 2: Remove the switch from circuit
Step 3: Lining up the switch and the clock.
Step 4: Make a test circuit
Step 5: Solder the wires and test.
This is probably not the best way of making a timer as i'm sure a pic chip could do all this and take up a fraction of the size. But for a really cheap easy timer i found this to be just fine. If you do use this idea of a timer i would love to hear what you used it for or any improvements you may have.
Thanks for reading. :)
