Switch Reliability Test

I have used most of the types of switches common in hobby rocketry for controlling power to on-board electronics. I've never actually had one fail, but others have and some make strong claims for one kind or other. Well, it seemed like something that should be tested!

At various times I'd thought about how to do the testing, but after people started claiming the Schurter voltage selector switches I had been using for the last half-dozen years were unreliable, I had to complete it.
