    I've been trying for ages to source some spdt short lever on-on mini toggle switches here in UK like these at this site (they are out of stock and shipping is high):

    Can anyone point me in the right direction. I'll reluctantly go for on-off-on if available.

    Thanks

    These look to be a common type of switch although they are often double pole, you do not have to use the other pole.

    In the UK you can try:-
    RS, Maplin (there are many local shops), Farnell, Cricklewood, Bowood, Potts (Derby, not far from the bus or train station).

    The switch itself is a comon C&K Switch, here in the States.
    Look-up the C&K product line, and you can obtain the full designation for that switch
    (The toggle-lever length is part of the full switch part number).
    One you have the full part number, you should be able to find the exact replacement,
    or a cross to another manufacturer's equivalent).

    Thank you kindly for that information. I have been able to find exactly what i want from Digikey:

    100SP1T2B9M1QE-ND

    It would be great if i could source them in UK to avoid the shipping.

    The really important thing here is that short lever. The ones in the picture i sent is about 5mm, but i'd like some around 3mm as well.

    Thanks again.

    Why not just reduce the size of your toggle with a grinder?

    That is a good idea, but could it be made look good afterwards? They are often plated brass.

    If the appearance makes a big deal, go to a electrical supply house and get the rubber they use for coating hand tools and dip it in that or something similar. How it looks wouldn't be important to me, I would be more interested in function.
