How would I go about to convert the E2 board to use a micro switch instead of an optical?

take the optical sensor off. jump where the optical sensor was. solder a microswitch onto the back of the board on the opposite position of where the optical sensor was.

is there anyone who has done this? / will do this for me for me? (for compensation of course)
I need possibly 2 e2 boards micro'd for a UL frame and a FBM frame.

Local computer repair shops can do desoldering and soldering

Thinking about this if you were putting the e2 board in a new frame depending on where the microswitch location was on the frame you could make a harness for the board and the switch with long enough wires and put the microswitch where ever it would need to be seeing how if the microswitch is soldered to the board it will need to be done just right to be perfect for that trigger / frame placement.

moody pb used to do it, i asked him how to and he said this:

The switch install is pretty simple:
Desolder the optic switch, and find the two pads that were the receiver part of the switch. Do this by shorting the pads, and watching the shot counter while the board is powered up. The pads are laid out like this( : : ) It will be one of the pairs of pads close together. Once you know which half was the receiver, just solder a lead wire into each hole, and run them to the micro-switch. The connection on the micro-switch must be in the Normally Closed, or NC tabs. The switch will have three poles, one NC, one NO, and another that isn't labeled. Use the non-labeled one, and the NC for the wire leads.
As for mounting the switch, I used custom made plates, and a 2.5mm by 10mm stand off to locate it correctly behind the trigger tang.
Thanks,
Nathan Moody
