Need photo of wiring layout for AE Styleline hookswitches
« on: September 10, 2014, 12:38:20 PM »
Hi, I have two AE Styleline hookswitches that the oringinal leads have broken from their solder points[ on the hokswitch.

I need a picture of the AE Styleline hookswitch showing the leads in their proper position, and what color lead goes to what contact; I am having my AE Styleline hookswitches rewired, and need the photo for a reference to get it done./font]

Here's mine.  Orange is 6, red is 20, yellow is 10, white is 8, and black is 11.

Hi, my "good"AE Hookswitch (Not the two with the missing leads) is in a ATC Empress with 7 leads; Orange, White, Green, Black, Yellow, Red and Slate leads.

I'll hang onto your picture and add it to my references.

I think part of my trouble is AE made 2 or 3 variations of that hookswitch, each set up slightly different, with variations in the contacts as well, not to mention leads that are too short and/or badly soldered at the point it goes onto the contact that have a tendency to "snap-off" unexpectedly.

I'm going to try visually seeing where the leads are soldered on it, and record it  so I can attach new lead wires.
{Needless to say I'm not a "soldering iron person", so I may have to find someone to do it for me.}

I usually have 3" to 3-1/2" leads so I have room to connect the hookswitch to the network of the set it's going into...(In this case it's another ATC Empress set).

BTW: If you want to know how my Empress with the good AE hookswitch is wired into it, email or reply, and I'll give you a wiring chart of how my Empress with the AE hookswitch is wired
