Update PCB from Schematic NOT Updating PCB

A technical correction for you to ponder . . .

24V 15A DC

Direct current applies to Amperes.

And another technical problem:

According to the Kicad Calculator, tracks on the PCB at the very minimum need to be 12.5mm wide.
How will you place them when you start the PCB?
How, and what do you use for plugs?
How do you place the switch?

To me, this looks like you should be connecting everything with wires except maybe the LEDs and their resistors and their connector.
Is it worth creating a PCB for two LEDs, two resistors and one three pin connector?

I recently finished my schematic utilizing all comments received from users. Modifications were needed since the above schematic was uploaded. My biggest problem was finding a compatible power port and switch to handle the 24v 15a DC input. Then I had to create my own symbols in KiCAD. So I am now on the next steps (PCB Editor) to lay out all the components, which I have successfully added and all footprints passed.
For instance. The power connector will be mounted on a panel, with the wires connected to the power switch, which will also be mounted on the panel. The switch will have wires connecting to a terminal block on the new aux board. Power will then be distributed as needed to the printers main board and fan thru terminal blocks positioned at the opposite side of the aux board.

Thanks Raptor, noted…

@jmk , You were correct, the previous switch design was TERRIBLE, so I took your comments and found a toggle switch with a datasheet (which included a schematic) and created my own symbol. The online store did not have a downloadable symbol.

There was also some concern regarding the PJ-044AH plug/socket. It was grossly under under-rated, so I searched for another option. Here is a screenshot of the new connector.

Its ratings : 24v DC at 15amps

Here is another screenshot of the updated schematic (just the power input)

U3, Power Connector will be panel mounted at the back of my new tower, it will be connected to the toggle switch (U2) using appropriate wire connectors. The toggle switch will then connect to the terminal block (U4), a 2 pin plug-able connector to its female counter part which will be affixed to the auxiliary board.

@Piotr , does this new switch answer your concerns of pins and led’s. I was going for a lighted switch but it would have been redundant since the led will tell me when power is on.
