I'm trying to figure out who actually manufactures blue dip switches like these and where I can order them inexpensively.  Sparkfun's datasheet says 4UCON on it, but that site looks like a reseller.

Specifically, I'm looking for one with 4 switches, with switches that can be flipepd with a fingernail like those ones.

And I'm not looking for dip switches in general, I've got plenty of sources for those.  I want nice blue ones. :-)

You're a picky ***   ;D

If price convinces you, here's where I got mine, red!

Yeah pretty cool that.

"switch position 3 and 9 to the 'on' position"
"which"
"the red and the white one"
"ahh, thanks"

I doubt there are many people doing electronics who can't read though  :D

Just trawled through RS Components.  Nearest were piano type switches which were illustrated in blue type and black type, but which you got was pot luck I think. They had some nice red ones and some nice black ones.....

Probably plenty who are colour blind though.

I hate colour-coded things, make picking resistors a bit of a lottery  :)

Yeah sounds like a pain...

Presumably a multimeter helps ;)

Yep, in fact it's the only way I have any idea.

Just for a laugh, my first job was as a TA wiring up the looms in the Townsville telephone exchange in '72. All colour coded of course starting with a wad as thick as your arm with probably a 1000 wires and branching out in a tree. The town must be still recovering from crossed lines  :)
