Actually I was asking TR, but since you decided to show your ignorance of electricity;

Are you saying that a 3-way is not a single pole/double throw switch? Then what is it?

Well DUH. If it’s SINGLE THROW, that’s ON/OFF. It would hardly need a second off position.

Well, if you insist but lets do a comparison.

This is the drawing you mailed me to scan for you. It was a starter drawing for an air compressor. Do you remember it?

You had the pressure switch shown normally open. It will never come on that way, so I fixed it for you.

No trickery these images were posted here on 09-13-2007.

I also scanned the instructions you sent along with the drawing.

Note in #1, you state the pressure switch is “normally open” when the tank is empty.

In #7, you say to break the neutral to wire the pressure switch on that side of the coil. That just isn’t proper. I emailed you the scans and told you I didn’t want to get involved.

You told me to FIX them for you and post them as yours.

I replied that if I fixed them, they would be my drawing and instructions not yours.

This was what I was working on but never posted because it was too different from yours.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.
