      On the rusty hardware issue, just painting over it won't cut it - the pain will peel off. Many people swear by Coke and al-foil. YOu scrunch the foil into a ball, wet it in Coke and rub - the rust comes off without damaging the chrome. Small parts can be soaked overnight in Coke and then just rinsed off.

        Is that diet coke or fat coke?

          Depends how thick the rust is.

You just need the hall effect sensor and a neodymium magnet, which you can either buy or scavenge out of an old hard disk. There are several threads in the megadrum forum on this; here's one of them: http://www.megadrum.info/forums/view...php?f=3&t=1194.

          I will look into it, thanks for the tip!
