Yea, it's pretty much a one shot. I was thinking about putting a spring in, but never got around to it. Maybe someday. One of the issues with just putting a spring straight in is that it'll power itself back up again if it plugs in. The motor provides the most return resistance, so I figure sticking a weak spring in and a manually activated clutch to disconnect the drive gear would be a suitable solution.
I like your thinking. I'll get it drawn up this evening.
Yup, but these were the only caps I had handy and they did the job. If it was a commercial product, or something that had to work reliably, it would be properly engineered.
