New (Old) Power Switch

I had this great heavy-duty switch that I had saved from a project a long time ago. Previously I was using two separate switches to control power from the battery going to the upper and lower portions of the robot's body. As I simplify the robot's electrical system I have decided that a single large power switch would better than two small ones due to safety reasons. The best thing about this switch is that if I want to, for example, just test the robot's arm all I have to do is put a jumper on the switch and I can have the drive base remain off to save power.
