    8 Position Rotary switches

    Hi,

    Anyone suggest a website where I can get hold of 5 rotary switches with 8 Positions?

    If possible some UK based so I do not end up spending more on postage than the parts!!

    I have tried ebay, Rapid and Maplin with no real luck.

    Thanks

    Jon

    hope that sorts you out.
    additionaly as Efe told you, Mouser is a great place to look for bits. they've opened a UK sales office, so you can now get GB£ pricing and a flat rate shipping.

    Maplin have rotaries with adjustable end-stop so you can make the switch have any number of ways from 2 to 12. You may already know that, and want the 8 positions equi-spaced around 360 degrees, in which case, ignore this!
