Where can I get this blue dip switch?

http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8034

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!

Hehe! I would think you of all people would appreciate my choice of color. :-)

Looks like tyco electronics do blue rocker and recessed DIP switches. That's the best I can find though.

They make rainbow dip switches? Now I've seen everything!

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

[nitpic] "the orange? and the white one" [/nitpic] :)

Grr, well I only had a quick look :wink:

Anoy of them helpful then scswift?

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 :)
