Does anyone still sell actual radio buttons - ie, the interlocking, latching push switches ?

 

I can see some 2nd-hand, ex-equipment ones on ebay, etc - but does anywhere sell new ones?

 

 

My google searching is just getting swamped by references to the GUI metaphor.

I don't know about "new" - it says "ITT Industries"

 

I did see that one, but they don't seem to be a current line item

EDIT

 

Although it does lead to this:

Alps still make them. RS have a few in stock.

#1 Hardware Problem? https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/...

#2 Hardware Problem? Read AVR042.

#3 All grounds are not created equal

#4 Have you proved your chip is running at xxMHz?

#5 "If you think you need floating point to solve the problem then you don't understand the problem. If you really do need floating point then you have a problem you do not understand."

Me?

 

Not fixing anything - want a way to switch headphones between a number of sources. Possibly a different source in each ear.

 

"Radio buttons" seem more convenient that rotary selectors.
