Looking for SPST ROTARY Power Switch...
« on: December 18, 2021, 09:44:15 AM »
Hive Mind -

I cannot locate a decent quality (read: not lamp switch) SPST rotary switch to replace the toggle switch provided in the kit. It can be multi-position as long as there's capability to provide a hard stop as in many switches used for input selection.  Yes, I could simply use one of those, but paying $50 for a power switch seems excessive. I've been through Digi-key, Mouser and partsconnexion and the like till my eyes water. Any ideas?

Many Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Mouser. It's a 4 pole, 2 position, non shorting.

If this is your first kit, we would very, very strongly suggest building it stock.  I have worked on 25-year-old kits with the original rocker switch we provided all those years ago still working perfectly with daily use.
