I have a dilemma that someone out there may be able to help me with!
I am trying, among several other projects, to build a TOS Desk Top Viewer!
At present I am trying to get the measurements so it looks right and then I can start to do the sub-assembly!
Over the past year or so I have search on and off over the internet trying to locate a pair of the switches pictured below! I have been unsuccessful at every attempt! Mouser, an electrical outlet who carry the bump-ons used on Enterprise, is looking into it now! Every couple days he emails with more questions so I don't have much hope there!
So I am looking for advice on the best place to look on the internet to hopefully find a pair of these switches!
The best I have managed to find is a smaller black toggle switch which was rounder and had a bushing which sat on top of the plastic base face! I couldn't remove the bushing because it was also part of the clip arrangement that snapped in and kept it in place! Totally useless!
So any help with this would be very much appreciated as this is one of the minor stumbling blocks I am having with this project, I don't know how big to make the hole for the switch!
Just to insure the powers that be, I am not attempting to break any rules here I just want some input from people on this board who have or may have had some experience at building a TOS Desk Top Viewer and who may remember or have knowledge as to were they got there switches from!
Thanks for any help, Petseal
