2020-06-10 (W) HexShaftMonitor

I added jumper wires to a reed switch. The cheap switch was fragile, so I had to avoid bending the wire leads near the glass, or it might shatter. I adhered the switch to the inside of the base with some double-sided foam tape. For the controller, I strapped it to the side of the plastic with rubber bands. A bolt acted as a counterweight to keep the display visible while I shot a short video. There were double-taps on the reed switch, so I needed to fix it and wrap up this project.
