I'd slaughter an old atx-case or a laptop.
Anyone know where I can get a push button switch that has 4 poles (places to wire to)? It needs to be either in the on or off set.
I am not sure which I need. It will be for replacing the on/off and eject buttons on my xbox....should i go with an on or off position momentary switch...
RADIO SHACK does not sell a four pole switch.
I think you already solved this problem, but you're looking for a 2-pole momentary switch (4 or 6 pins). The 6-pin will probably be more common.
Any electronics store should have this, they are not uncommon.
case buttons that are used for power/reset/turbo usually have 6 pins, meaning pins 1-2 and 4-5 are connected when the switch is open, and 2-3 and 5-6 are connected when the switch is pressed.
