Why would you connect the lead to the resistor?
I did say in my post "Referring to this project" and "In my project". That means the example is just a functional example to show what I'm trying to achieve electronically.
I don't particularly want to connect the lead to the resistor, I was just trying to show whereabouts it goes logically without having to download the drawing, alter it, then upload it on here. Instead of saying "from the right side of the resistor" I could equally have said "from the left hand side of the switch to, for example, pin 2".
Moving away from this example, functionally what I want to achieve is to press a momentary button and for that to feed 5 volts to 2 separate IC inputs - they're both likely to be 555 timer inputs but may end up being other cmos type ICs.
