Many thanks for the suggestions!

Glad it worked out. I thought I was the only one that ended up taking 5 times as long to accomplish a task as I initially estimated...........

Guyod-

There is a relatively easy way to do a 3 way wireless switch and we do it here in Salt lake once a week or so on different properties. There is a switch made by enocean that will control a receiver from around 100 feet. the cool part is the switch doesn't need batteries or wires, it powers itself with some crazy german engineering. we get ours from www.enoceanwireless.com but there are several places that sell them. they work great for lathe and plaster set-ups

Thats pretty neat. . $180 for a set seems steep but when you factor in all the work to wire a 3 way its priced right. I would have to get 2 sets because i would break one set taking it apart to figure out how pushing the switch generates enough power to send a signal.
