    Hi everyone,

    I'm wondering if there's a good source online someones found for button-switches, similar to the one pictured below.

    I know sometimes you can get lucky, and find one built into cheapo dollar-store toys/flashlights - but I'm looking for an online retailer (or overseas eBay seller - anyone!) who might sell stuff like this.

    Thanks!

    don't know any online sites but another sources is cigarette lighters, I bought a bunch that have the led, batteries and a switch built in to the side with no fuel in it.

    Awesome! Bought a pack, will see how they work out. I need to wire up a G1 Megatron scope/gun for my modern 'Action Master' style megs, along with a WFC Megs - so these should come in handy. :) 

    Thanks also for this suggestion Kenjo - I'll keep my eye out for these at stores around town. Having everything together would make things easier. :) 

    I'm still going to keep my eye out for small battery holders. I'll salvage some from cheap LED keychain flashlights, but having ones with clean contacts would be nice. ^_^
