Help with antique three way switch

I have a 60's era Stiffel table lamp that has a bad rotary switch. It's a three-way switch with an unusual design. I cannot find a replacement. Is it possible to salvage this switch in some way? Any help is appreciated. Tom

Three things

If you were to be stuck in the wilderness, and needed to survive, what three things would you want to have? No cars, phones, complete survival kits, etc. those just make it less fun. Only put single, survival type things in your should be able to tell if it's "cheating" or not. If you choose food, don't be outrageous in energy bar, not a case of them from costco. Guns can count, but bullets are separate...maybe ten bullets if you choose to have them as one of your three things.Mine:knifeflintWater bottleAlso, what "Creature Comfort" would you want? This can be something like a book, harmonica, stuffed animal, etc. Pets are allowed, as long as it's not your hunting dog, or your giraffe who gathers coconuts for you.Mine is my dog, Buck. =]Have fun, and be creative!

3-Phase Power? Answered

I already asked a question about three-phase power but my results only confirmed what I thought.  I don't understand how a MOTOR can run at 230v with three phases,  how do they rate power with these I guess.  230v outlets have three prongs, I think two are connected to the generator through power transmission lines, and one is a ground.  If this is wrong were do they get 230v because, if I am wrong all three wires connect to generator coils.  This would add up to 345v.  But to get 230v it would only be two phases.  Then it can also run on 480v, how in the world do you get to 480v.  Please help me with this.

3-channel RGB LED Color Organ

Pretty much I want to make a 3-channel color organ and hook it up to a single RGB LED. I'm really not used to analog electronics, but I'm pretty sure this could be achieved with a single quad op amp IC. Seeing as I would much rather trust your guys' expertise over my lack of said knowledge, I thought I'd ask the experts. I did get a schematic in Multisim, but I'm really not sure about the functionality.

THREE-DEE VIDEO from multiple lcd panels.

This morning I was watching television and thought to myself, "Wouldn't Good Morning America be so much interesting in three dimensions? This got me thinking, and I came to this idea: what would happen if you dissected a bunch of lcd monitors, removed the backlights, and stacked them. Then, you plug all of the screens into a processor that generates an image for each screen, and have a powerful backlight to illuminate these screens. I know that it is quite a stretch, but if one could work around issues such as the amount of heat produced and the cost of production, I think this could work. I think the best bet for input would be using RGB or CKMY on multiple panels, but I am not an expert in optics or any of that. So basically, this is an outline of what would need to happen, as far as I can tell: 1. A group of LCD panels that, when in a cascade formation and are fed sufficient data, produce a three-dimensional image 2. A bright backlight that is capable of illuminating said LCD group 3. A video processor capable of sending multiple signals to the screens that would produce a three dimensional image (as stated in point 1) 4. A cooling system to maintain component functionality 5. A benefactor or deep pockets 6. Lots of spare time If you have any ideas, please add them, I'd love to hear from the Instructables community.

(SOLVED) Three-Legged Switch - Help Please!

I recently took apart a transmitter for a set of wireless headphones that gave up on me. I salvaged a few capacitors, 4 infra red LEDs, and a switch.The problem is, I don't know how to use the switch as it has 3 legs. The only switches I know of have 2 legs. It only has 2 positions (on and off).  Could anyone let me know how to use it? Thanks,  H4ZZ

How to make an LED circuit that switches between different colored lights when flipping a switch?

So here's the thing: I've made multiple series circuits that turn run off of a 12v power supply and I wired a simple two-state switch into it so the lights would turn on when I pressed down the button. It currently uses 3 LEDs and one 82 ohm resistor. I want to make a circuit that can switch between multiple different colored LEDs. For example: have one blue LED and when I flip the switch a little bit, it switches to a red LED, and flipping it again switches it to a green LED (I know about different LED voltages btw, that's just an example). I figure I'll need some kind of three-state switch or something? I don't know what parts I would need or how I would wire them up so any help would be appreciated. I'll answer any questions about the project you have since I know I didn't explain it well.

I'm planning on having a k'nex war/game of capture the flag with three friends. What guns do I use?

I want to have four different guns. I have already planned to use a sniper rifle, a crossbow, a semi-automatic gun, and a pistol, but htat wouldn't be fair to whoever got it (the pistol, I mean). What kind of gun should I use as the fourth type, and does anybody have any suggestions for what gun(s) i should use for each category? They shouldn't use a million pieces. I was also thinking of using a shot-gun. is this a good idea? Suggested guns should not be too powerful, as this war is supposed to be inside.
