    I'm having a problem seeing pictures in this thread, what I'm reading sounds pretty interesting and would probably work on my 1946 dodge truck build , can anyone help me out with pictures of this, just so that i can put a visual to all the reading ... any help is greatly appreciated!

    You can also buy 3/4" "double D" shaft from most tractor supply/farm and fleet type stores, not much, if any, more than round bar stock...

    Or we have them made up with a quick disconnect.

    Toggle switch with a home made box welded to the column. Use your imagination. I have a rat we are building that the ignition switch is a fire alarm switch (its firefighter themed). Its not a restoration, there are no rules.

    aftermarket ones look like junk
    I'm thinking something that fits a rat like a "$20 column" does
    Home made, "built not bought"

    They make aftermarket turn signals switches that bolt to a steering colum, and have for decades, or a toggle switch.

    Are there any pictures of this? What about adding a QD for the wheel to make getting in and out easier?
