Switch 2-pin JST Cables

Use one of the 2-pin JST extension cables to connect the toggle switch to the Prop-Maker FeatherWing.

Cut the extension cable so each connector has a wire length of about 6cm(2in).

2-pin JST wire tinning

Using wire stripper, remove a bit of insulation from each wire. Use a third helping hand tool to keep the whiles steady. Add a bit of solder and tin the stands of wire. Repeat for the accompanying 2-pin JST cable.

Solder Wires to Switch

Decide which cable you'd like to connect the switch (doesn't matter which). Tin the leads using a bit of solder – This will make the wires "stick" better. Solder the two wires to the middle pin and either far left or right pin. 

Wired Toggle Switch

Double check the wires are properly soldered. The solder joints should be solid. A pieces of heat shrink tubing will keep the wires bundled together.

The second JST cable will connect to the Prop-Maker FeatherWing, later in the build. Set it aside for now.
