Where can I get tact switches?

Post by Trollman » Thu Jul 21, 2011 4:05 pm

I'm currently doing Hailrazer's Gamecube trigger mod, and have figured out I need some 5mm momentary-on tact switches. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any. Does anyone know where to get 5mm momentary-on tact switches? Somewhere on the internet would be preferable.

I usually order new parts from ca.Digikey.com (Tactile Switches; off-Mom, vertical, non-illuminated, instock)(because I am lazy, and shipping is free with orders > $50) but Mouser.com (off-Mom, vertical, non-illuminated) is good too.

Also, here is a list of 'surplus' suppliers in Canada http://www.repairfaq.org/ELE/F_surplus_ca.html but I've not really used these before and the list is slightly out of date by a few years...

Are you sure these will work? I was told the tact switches I needed were Momentary-On.

... do you mean normally-open (off, momentary on) or normally-closed (on, momentary off)
