[Autococker] Eblade / Tadao Yakuza microswitch-conversion

Eblade\Tadao Yakuza\equivalent board microswitch conversion:

I know a lot of you tinkerers out there like the microswich over the optical one for various reasons.. Some might just prefer the microswitch, others "need one" to use it in a specific frame (like the FBM Fierce frames) simply to avoid having to modify the trigger to activate the optical switch. Well, whatever your reasons might be for wanting to convert. Here's how you do it. The great thing is that this is actually VERY easy to do as long as you have a few basic things availible to you. You will need:

Soldering iron\station
Solder
"Helping hands"
Some wire
A Microswitch of your choice (3 pin)


The microswitch:
First of all, cut the middle pin of your microswitch. This is simply because we don't need it for anything on these boards, then solder a wire to each of the remaining pins. I would suggest you put heatshrink over the connections after soldering to keep everything neat,tidy and dry.


Removing the optical-switch & Soldering the microswitch into the board:
Then you desolder the optical switch. Once that's gone, simply solder the wires from the microswitch onto these connection-points on your board. For my FBM Frame, I soldered the wires onto the underside of the board, due to the space needed for the actual microswitch.






Voilla you're done!
Feel all good about yourself for making this work.. *insert MacGyver themesong here*

Performing the conversion is EASY... So I guess a lot of people can do it Atleast when they know where to solder the leads

And to the guy over here ^^ Yes I still have this.

It looks easy but just too risky for me. I don't have an E1 board to practice on either.
