Rotary switches, where to buy?

    Where can one buy (online) a rotary 3x4 switch?

  2. Many rotary switches have adjustable stops. So as long as the switch has as many (or more) poles than you need, and there's as many (or more) positions than you need, you can select a switch that they do have in stock.

    For example, my stereo preamp needed a 2 pole, 7 position switch. They stocked a 2 pole, 3 to 12 position switch...no problem, I set the stop so the switch only goes to 7 positions.
  3. Newark and Digikey also have them (I've posted links before but they seem to expire, so just go to www.newark.com or www.digikey.com and do a search for "rotary switch").
