    I go to my local hardware store and buy a circuit breaker or something called a knife switch.

    Circuit breakers and fuses are safety devices; they need to be carefully engineered and thoroughly tested under laboratory conditions to ensure their proper and safe functioning.
    If improperly designed/constructed, a fire and/or plasma fireball may result, the latter being extremely dangerous.

    For your (and others) safety, please do not attempt to make your own circuit breakers, switches or fuses, nor attempt to repair faulty commercial circuit breakers/switches.
