    First of all thanks to Bill Marsden and DerStrom8 for the schematics and help (see image)

    I have ordered the components and now awaiting deliver for this circuit.

    I have a question. say for example the the power is turned on via a tactile switch. It will run for a minute but if I wanted to stop that how could i do it?
    It would be preferred to use the same switch.

    thanks guys

    So, this timer circuit is for your automatic cabriolet roof project?

    It won't do what you want it to do.

    Nope I've abandoned that project as I sold the car

    I am trying to self teach about electronics. I'm thinking about making a basic car with robotic/moving parts.

    A toy not real car with loads of led's and things
