Basically just hook the signal lugs on each 1/4 inch jack together and do the same for the ground wire. then with a handy wire stripper, strip the middle of each wire and hook I the 1/8inch jack in the middle.

Step 4: Put 'er all together

take the electronics and put them in the project box. my 1/8inch jack wasn't a thread in kind so I had to hot glue in the 1/8inch jack, but the other two were held on by nuts.
a kill switch for what?
