    I am in need of an 8-position rotary or slide switch for a project I'm
    doing and am having trouble finding a manufacturer who produces such a
    switch. Do you have any suggestions on where to look?

    Hi Kris

    The link below will take you to Mouser's rotary switch web page. They
    sell a wide variety of switches.

    This is the first place I looked, A more thorough search for electronics
    component distributors might turn up a better price.

    You buy a 10 or 12 position rotary switch (which are fairly standard)
    and there's a little stop which you set to make it into an 8-position
    (or whatever)

    Usually you get a choice of 12 pos 1 pole, or 6 pos 2P, or 3 pos 4P,
    in the same range.
