    I am having a hard time finding a single pole triple throw sustained push switch.

    I basicly need one that is off on on. I have found some for lamps that are off L1 L2 then 1 and 2. This would work except I don't want 1 AND 2. Just off L1 L2 off again.

    Does such a switch exist?

    If someone could direct me to such a switch I would be stoked as heck.

    The push pull won't work, same with the toggle style. Im putting it under a foot pedal. I am trying to make it so the foot pedal being clicked once does one thing, 2 times does another thing and then 3rd time it goes back off. Kind of like those fan pull strings but with out the L1 + L2.

    A pull string would work if it didn't have the L1 + 2

    I could make it so when the peddle is pushed down it pulls the string each time. Hmmm

    you could try a micro switch and a micro controller with MOSFETs.
    someone will probably have a small circuit that will do the same
