    where to buy switches

    I want a DPDT flat handle toggle switch, about 15 amp rating, with quick-connect terminals. Weatherproof would be a bonus, chrome would be a bonus, but I'll take what I can get. Needs to fit in a 1/2" hole.

    Seems like a standard thing everyone would sell, but not so. Radio Shack's version is momentary (spring loaded). Others are center off. Most are screw terminals instead of blades. Auto parts stores only have single pole. PartsExpress no gots.

    Someone please point me to a source. Thanks.

    Re: where to buy switches

    Thanks guys. I found one at Mouser that looks like it'll work. I knew this was the best place to ask.

    BTW the application is a headlight / pilot lamp switch on my 74 Norton motorcycle. It sits prominently on the headlight shell. Needs to be flat handle and chrome threads to look like stock. Can't have points taken off at shows for an ugly switch.

    Brit bike parts suppliers get over 50 bucks for an exact replacement. This one is only $6 and sealed too.
