Re: Control panels. Show us yours.

Re: Tools needed

You may find a circular saw more useful than a jigsaw if you need to make long straight cuts, and a straight piece of wood to use as a guide for either type of saw. Even with a guide, a jigsaw can wander off line if you are not careful.

Re: Switch Question

DPDT means they are double pole double throw.

They can be used as on-off switches by connecting between the centre terminal and one of the matching end terminals. As they are double pole they can switch 2 independent circuits at the same time if required.
