    All of the nicele manufactured designs I've see put the small square snap
    action tactile buttons (little silver ones with the black rubber button) on
    the PCB and the button part you push is just a plastic mechanism with a rod
    behind it to push in the black rubber piece when the button on the panel is
    pressed.

    This gives a nice click-click tactile feedback. Where can I find the
    plastic mechanism that drives teh pcb mounted tactile button. I don't know
    the name of the mechanism so I'm havine a hard time searching for it.

    OR alternatively, who knows of a 1/4" - 1/2" panel mount button (preferably
    round) that has low travel and snap action for tactile feedback. The
    plunger can't protrude too far out passed the body or it might get damaged.

    thanks.
