Here's the end solution. Had to add some product cost to the whole thing but I think it is worth it. We were using existing switch signals to trigger the witch but it has become apparent for many reasons that there isn't enough reliability there. So we moved to a mechanical switch setup. This custom bracket slips on to the witch mechanism and mounts two standard micro switches which will trigger the up and down actuation. I have a similar idea for the hit detection, if it works out I can send out an update kit as the whole thing already has the wiring built in.
The plate secures itself but I built in ziptie mounts to strap it to the bracket for added security. Adjustment built in for switch movement, switches of course included and wired up to the controller, screwed to the bracket ready to go. This one was printed in white for testing but I think all the finished ones will be printed in something cool. I am going to test carbon fiber filament for this, which I think will work and I have an excess of so perfect fit. It should blend in and be a bit cool looking at the same time. The bracket also sort of acts as protection for the rod and lower opto. I bent my original rod so sort of nice to have this added.
Thanks for the patience, it was worth it to make this change now and prevent further headaches. We have a handful of updated harnesses and we'll be getting the rest of the switches delivered tomorrow and will update the rest. As soon as yours is updated it will be put in the mail.
I have a few other WOZ mods coming out and as a thank you for the understanding I'll have a special offer or gift for everyone who purchased the witch mod so far. Might be a limited edition thing, not 100% sure as I have 3 WOZ mods in development.pasted_image (resized).pngpasted_image (resized).png
