    Where to buy push button

    Hi guys,

    I am trying to source some of the push buttons that incorporate an LED. You can see them being used here to build an audio panel.

    I have looked all over but cant find them. Does anyone have an ideas?

    Many thanks
    Marc

    Marc,
    What about using something like these and make your own Key caps.
    They would look more like the real thing (at least all the ones I have flown with).

    Those switches are made by Mountain or Miyama Electric Co. Ltd.
    Model DS-661R
    Also known as DS-661S.
    I have looked from time to time, the planet over, to find them. Opencockpits in Spain used to have them, but no longer.

    There are other switches that can substitute.
    E-Switch 5501MBLKGRN is one I'm using to make a COM panel. The old designation was 5501M12. You might find it in a search as well.
    DigiKey has them for around $4 US if you buy 10.
    https://www.digikey.com/product-deta...7171-ND/101669
    Mouser has 219 of them at $4 or less if you buy 10 or more. (As of 7-10-2017) Listed as 5501M12.

    Thanks for this. I remember looking at these guys a couple of years ago but had forgotten about them.
    Cheers
