I seem to have completely forgotten one of the sources I used when ordering parts for my build. I need to get a couple momentary buttons and some decent metal flip switches.

I know Auberin's is for the PIDs and lights and some switches.

There was another 'discount' site to order switches and connectors through, but not sure what it was. Any thoughts?

(Ebay and Amazon have both ended up with some seriously crappy and poorly made switches, not interested in that anymore.)

I might have to just go to Radio Shack, but they have limited supply/options.

Maybe you're thinking of ElecDirect?

Really the ones on eBay are usually the same exact items being sold for 5x markup on retailers. Just buy a 5pc lot for cheaper than a single one on retail and enjoy having spares around. To get truly quality switches it seems like they start at $20+/pc for the US made name brands.

Just my own experience, maybe someone here can show us the holy grail of switching.
