Turning an autofire switch into a button

Dear EAB,

I have a slightly dumb question, but I think it needs asking: Can I turn an on/off autofire switch (which I salvaged from a dissected Cheetah 125+ joystick) into a dedicated momentary button (push the button = AF on, release it = AF off)? Although I have an idea how it might have to be done (desolder the switch and wire up a Sanwa/Seimitsu push button to the ON terminal and ground), I just want some confirmation that I'm doing it right and I'm not going to screw up.

Yours sincerely,
Swevicus.

Maybe you've figured it out already, but yes, that is how it might work alright - autofire circuits that are in series with the fire button work that way. When they're enabled, the autofire operates when the fire button is pressed. When they're disabled, the fire button acts as normal.

Thank you. I think it's time I stopped dilly-dallying.

Dilly-dallying is perfectly fine if you enjoy it This is just a hobby after all - once you're enjoying whatever it is you're doing then it's all good!
