I haven't personally bought any of these, but at least it's some suggestions:

I made my own from parts from Ace Hardware. I used a .25" ID/.375" OD flanged bronze bushing at the faceplate, a .25" plated steel rod cut to length, and a .25" ID straight bronze bushing for the coupling. I had to drill and tap the coupling to use 2 socket head set screws, but otherwise it was uber easy and cheap.

The one that I got from vt4c jiggles. I would use another site next time.


You might even want to try a relay switch instead: http://www.twistedpearaudio.com/darwin/darwin.aspx

I've read that the quality of relay switches is better than rotary switches.
