I want to design a simple circuit that drives a motor and spindle a particular distance, stops, then starts again. Answered

I want to push a button to start a platform to drive a certain distance, then hits a microswitch to stop, then I can push the same button to continue driving the same direction to the next point. The distance cannot be timed because the distance needs to be change by moving the microswitch. I would like all this to be done without a huge PCB, perferably only resistors and 555Timer. And I also want the spindle to stop even if the button is still pressed.

This circuit starts when the button is depressed and stops
when the micro-sw is activated even if still depressing the start.

Repressing the start works again.  .  .  .  A

This should be a rule, but you need to tell us what you know. We can start spouting off about relays, and microcontrollers, but if you don't know amps from ohms, that advice won't help.

I know basic digital electronics, Gates, amps, ohms, volts, DC...etc.

Beyond a 555 timer !

You can do it with relays, but its pretty tricky.
