    So I am trying to figure out how to wire this project up. Here are the details and links to the components.

    I have 8 individual ASCO Valves that are 12v and .5amp as seen here http://bagriders.com/modlab/products/ASCO-BRASS-VALVES.html

    Each corner has 2 valves (1 for up, 1 for down) and each corner I am going to use the switch seen here http://www.avsontheweb.com/product.php?productid=1308&cat=596&page=1 which is a momentary (on) off (on) switch with 6 prongs.

    I want to have an all up / all down switch in the middle as seen here http://greatlakesskipper.com/produc...entary-onoffon-anchor-boat-rocker-switch.html

    How would I go about doing this? Diodes? Relay? I know its possible cause its a common switch box function for yhe pre fabbed switchboxes... I just want to build something more custom and my own since I am an aviation electrician... but I have been out of the fleet for a few years as a recruiter and now forget how to do this.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. If you could describe the method and then what values I would need for the components I would be forever in your debt. And I will take pictures of the build and finished project.

    Also, forgot to add that IMO the tricky part is I want to be able to use each corner individually and have them tied into the all up / all down funtion. My worry is that hitting only the left front up switch it will trigger all up. I know there is a way... I am just to rusty to think of it.

    nothing? Am I over thinking this? I know I at least need diodes but can't figure out which ones.

    Niagre V Dub,

    Assuming that I fully understand what you are looking for and that all switches can handle the solenoid loads, the attatched should be, atleast close to, what you are looking for.
