  1. Hi Nickolas -

    I'm sure you're suggestion is a good one - although I really wouldn't know how to incorporate these into a control system.....

    My (mechanical) ideas involved something similar - I thought about making my own leaf switches, but I didn't know how once the elevator triggered a switch (stopping the elevator), it would allow the power to the winching motor to be  reversed so that the elevator could then be manually switched to travel in the opposite direction.

    Any further thoughts?


  2. Hi There -
    I wonder if any of you out there can help me out? I'm a modelmaker who's been asked to feature a working elevator (or lift if you're in the UK like me) in a 1/12 scale model house.

    As I know next to nothing about electronics I wondered if there was a simple way (using a circuit) to control one? What I want to acheive is to enable the elevator to be moved via an up button and a down button on the model base. It would also need to have a switch or sensor to stop it at the bottom (when going downwards) and at the top (when going up).

    The model has three floors - a basement, a ground floor, and a first floor. If moving from the basement upwards for instance, it isn't necessary that the elevator automatically stops at the middle floor (I thought it would be fun for the user to have to time their use of the two buttons).

    If anyone thinks they can help - please remember that I am a novice - so the simpler the solution the better........

    Many thanks, Dan.
