Default switches

Hi Lynn, I got a couple of these from Nigel Ward last year, he may have more. They came without the springs which I had to make out of piano wire.

Hi. I thought I would bump this 14 year old request to see if the result might have changed. I'd like to obtain 3 good ones or parts of them.

Lynn, this is MLU, not Facebook. Nothing changes after 14 years!

Tony, please do not destroy my microscopically thin thread of hope! (but you are probably correct?) How are you managing after the losses from the big fire, a while back?
The Forum is so much better in many ways. If you can't find an earlier thread, a bloke called Smith finds it for you. I better get off here so that I can watch the responses come in. (Is there a smilie for dreaming?)

Lynn, I have moved this thread to the for sale & wanted section with a redirect from the UC section to get maximum exposure.

One day you will find them!
