Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

Apparently the nomenclature I used earlier regarding the rotary switch for your cathode current meter was incorrect. A shorting switch and a make-before-break switch are one and the same. I was sure a shorting switch is one that cumulatively shorts adjacent contacts together as the switch is turned, but that's not how manufacturers are presently describing them. In fact, during a quick search, I couldn't even find that configuration.

Anyway, I just wanted to point out a switch on eBay that would do what you need for the meter switching. I stumbled across it while looking for something else.
