Attaching a Micro switch to an old Graves

I bought the smallest micro switch Radio Shack had plus wire and connectors that I could attach an ohm meter to. I soldered the wires on the switch, then super glued the switch to the stop on the movable guile arm as shown below.  I used a small piece of agate that I shaped on a cab machine to be super glued to stop on the mast as can be seen in the picture. Connect an ohm meter before gluing to check what is the best position to get the meter to move over.
