I have to fit some Tortoise Machines to sceniced layout, under the base board fitting is out of the question, I can only get them about 9"-12" from each switch, and then not in line, has anybody got ideas for a remote mount using a flexible cable or wire in a tube idea.
These will be on a set of junction switch's, so there will be 4 in a line, I am thinking I can mount them all on a bit of plywood that will be slid into place and fixed down, all the wiring can be done of board with a multi connector plug.So any ideas out there?

Found some Park Flier control cable, looks like it will do the job I want, just need to fabricate some fittings, should all be good, I hope!
