Fisher 1265x part

Post by aeroken1 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 5:58 pm

Hi all, Does anyone know where i might be able to source a pin point/disc toggle switch for my 1265x. Have tried a few places but no luck. Thanks in advance.

standard miniature toggle switch.

original is a double pole double throw which only latches on one side so the pinpoint is momentary

Only one side is used so a single pole double throw works fine and is what i used.

eBay will give you free postage but links on here aren't allowed

Farnell
RS
Tayda
Mouser
CPC

will all have the switch


the diameter of the hole in the box is 6.35mm on-off-momentary


The standard lever length isn't annoying but the longer ones are available for a few pence more.
