When I say "sensors" it mean a sensor that I have to support it to run the machine, I want to use a sensor which looks like a button.

Hi all!
Anthony, do you mean a solid state sensor used as a limit switch?

Or do you mean a failsafe switch - where you have to hold the switch down (or up) to make the machine work ???
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.
