  • Red/Green Lighted Toggles

    I am looking for some lighted toggles. Apparently, they are not as popular as I thought they would be.

    Ever seen the movie "The Soldier" with Kurt Russell that came out a couple of years ago? Well, the bad guys have this huge armored personell carrier with a really tricked out cockpit. In the cockpit, in the overhead switch panel, is a row of toggle switches. They start out lighted red, then when the guy flips the switch, they turn green.

    When no power is applied, I assume they are clear to allow for the color change. I think they may be the same as the one in the top left of this picture:


    The website I got the picture from neither lists prices nor ordering information.

    I have checked digikey, jameco, allelectronics, MPJA, and every search engine known to me looking for these switches. Does ANYBODY know where I can get some or can point me in the right direction?

    You could always hack one apart and replace the LED with a dual color LED.

      Hmm...I can get those from Radio Shack, most auto parts stores, and my local electronics shop...FWIW, the ones at the electronics shop are much higher quality than those found at Rat Shack or Canadian Tire...
