Installing a power switch

In the original design, the only way to to turn the Vertex off is by pulling the plug from the mains.
It quickly becomes boring and a power connector with a switch fitted to the printer is a much more stylish solution.
What we need to achieve this is a power cord socket and a switch (preferably bipolar).
You'll also need a soldering iron, flat plugs and thermo-shrinkable tubes.
