    Anyone know a great place to buy switches and buttons (electrical)?

    I'm simply looking for a 3 position, momentary switch that's really small. And cheap

    I'm not even sure that is what its called. But the switch should NOT do anything in the middle position (off) and then is momentary on either end (on)

    and then a regular inline switch

    thanks

    Very secretive, aren't you !
    You don't want to pay $50 postage on a $2 switch, do you ? OR is it a tenner postage on a 10p switch....get my point now ? You did say cheap !!!

    Yea, you should. As it happens I'm in the UK, but it would be no good sending you to Maplins in Leicester, England or even Maplins.co.uk. Would it !
    What's wrong with Radio Shack...I thought that was pretty good in the States.

    "momentary SPDT center off" is the industry name for that switch.
