    I had a PCB made up and wasn't careful to pay attention to the pin
    spacing on the switch I used. I need a SPST momentary switch with a 4mm
    or .156" pin spacing where the center pin is common. I wanted it to be
    ..1" spacing but I didn't double check that so now it is too late. I
    have been looking at data sheets for switches from mouser and digikey
    and have had no luck yet. I am thinking I may have to get out the
    drill, and drill some new holes.

    I've seen a SPST that used the same construction as the SPDT. These had
    a center pin and one side pin only.

    Is it possible to mount the switch to the intended enclosure and wire
