    Does anyone know where I can find spade connectors of the size to fit the terminal tab on OB's limit switches.....or are they even called spade connectors.I doubt that I will get them wired correctly the first time and don' want to solder them until I get them right

    Try Faston P/N 61070-1 2.8mm x 0.51mm Female push-on disconnects (90Deg). You can solder the wire on the Push-on connector and push-on connect it to the limit switch.

    You cant get it wrong the switches are clearly marked - a soldered connection is more secure and less prone to issues

    Com - Common
    NO - Normally Open
    NC - Normally Closed

    NC is the standard used by many cnc machines

    If your using a grbl based system, You may find this useful
