That looks like the best option yet. Not sure if mounting hole positions will line up with the bracket, but that is a minor issue.

Re: Need replacement switch for RaceMaster timer

MicroWizard Timers has an RS Remote Start Switch and 50' of cable for $15.00. My switch closely resembles the one shown by Vitamin K. They state if you are ordering this switch for a previously purchased timer give them a call and tell them exactly what you have. You will need to have MicroWizard b...

Re: Need replacement switch for RaceMaster timer

If the problem is a bad switch, then this part may be a suitable replacement, Omron D2MC01H. Though, it may be obsolete too.

Re: Need replacement switch for RaceMaster timer

@Anmarie - When you move the whisker, do you hear a click?

Check the wires connected to the switch and make sure that they are firmly connected.

Check also wires going into the back end of the plug on the end of that cable. See if you have a loose or broken wire there.

Re: Need replacement switch for RaceMaster timer

This looks to be the correct part, Cherry E53-00R, but it looks to be obsolete. Not sure what a suitable replacement would be.

Can it be colored or just tinted?
I've seen it both ways.

Re: Freedom Track Mods

If you do the whole track a solid color, I'd go for a color that hides graphite better.

Is yours is un-anodized track? If so, you do have the option of colored anodizing. Powder coating may provide too thick of a coating that may give you issues reassembling the track.

Re: Freedom Track Mods

I think the Awana colors work just fine, even for non-Awana events, as they are just basic colors.

Why can't you make it easy and have an attachment button below this window so you can upload pics straight from your phone?
Well, that would mean that we would have to host the images on our web server. Images take up a lot of storage space and space costs money (as a recurring monthly charge).
