Default Re: shavings found in light switch body

Looking at his switch plate, it appears to be a Twolight (three contacts in succession, one set three each for battery, tail-light, and the "parking, Low, and High" beams.

The type H switch plate is different and has contacts "alternately" with clear spots.

You can't use a Type H switch contactor against a Twolight switch plate, and converse.

Look at the small dimple @ 11;00 o`clock, only the 1928 mid to late had that style and that mark..
