I ordered one of those emergency stop buttons as part of my build. Though out my testing I have used it in the testing. Over the last two days of testing it started to just pop apart into two pieces...on a regular basis.
I can see how it is supposed to fit together, and twist to lock down, but the button itself also twists to reset. So now the whole thing just comes apart in two pieces. It's as if the part the button is supposed to lock into has become loose?
Anyone else come across this? Is this common if you use that button too often? (If it is then I need to use a power switch to my board and not the emergency button as my on/off for board.)
Is yours mounted? To get it on a panel you push down and twist the operator to remove it from the contact blocks, then attach it back on through the panel wall. Then you tighten the two set screws to snug everything up.
