Need help with switch...

(1/5) > >>

easilyconfused:
Using (magnetic) switch one, I turn on a motor running on household current. I press a spring loaded button (switch two). As I hold the switch in the motor continues to run. When I release the switch the motor shuts off. Is there such a switch? Thanks for any help.

Jimmy:
If you want to only run the motor while you have your finger on the button a normally open momentary push button is what you require

easilyconfused:
The motor is already running because of switch one (has to be this way). Then I press switch two. The motor continues to run unless I let go. Sort of like holding a grenade with the pin pulled but lever held in. I know it sounds crazy but this is what I need for an invention.

xygor:
Yes.  There are push button switches that toggle their state upon release, not when pressed.

Thanks. Do you know how I might Google it? Does it have a name that would make it easier?
