water level conductive test
Refraction.   But I hafta admit the idea of a liquid-cored inductor is fascinating on many levels.    S.

water level conductive test
(Incidentally, one thing you can do for fun is pour yourself a glass of your finest local tap-water, then put your multimeter probes into it and measure the resistance...  )...

water level conductive test
To be a lot more helpful, yes.  If you're using typical tap water all you need is two copper strips about 1cm apart, at least one of which ends at the desired level. ...

Hmm.  Other ways to measure water level...      These have the same problems as barnacle's solution, but here's a few thoughts:   Turn on a known power...

Momentory Switch to Toggle On/Off
Suggest you don't.  Momentary-toggle switches, especially badly-debounced ones, are nasty in real life.  Note that wear and tear on the button mechanism can do horrible...

DRV8305 3 phase stepper driver control
Except it shouldn't be!      You don't need a tach for a stepper motor.  It will step as fast as it's told to!  No more, no less!   Unless...

DRV8305 3 phase stepper driver control
Huh.  Point taken - that is indeed a three-phase stepper motor.  Unusual!   I'm not sure your DRV8305 is going to be happy with it...  but that's a different...

DRV8305 3 phase stepper driver control
Three phases is also very strange for a stepper motor, so are optical encoders.  Are you sure these aren't three-phase BRUSHLESS motors?   If they are, in fact, steppers...

Anybody have any data on Pittman HP plotter motor with shaft encoder?
Typical settings for an encoder like that would be 250 fringes (slots) in the disc, and when you pick up all four edges you get 1000 counts around.  Encoder people like...
