    Which Switch?

    What's a good switch from Digikey for a multimode 7135 driver?

    I found these. Will the switch work like a reverse clicky on a flashlight with the modes? Better options?

    Thanks

    Why not order flashlight switches and covers from DX ?
    Green covers are the best.

    I need a panel mount switch. It's for a build using 1x1 alum tubing.

    I have some of the 16mm dx clicky switches, but I don't know how I could use them unless I glue them in. After waiting weeks for the xml to come out and all my planning, I want it to look decent.

    My Judco switches do work like a reverse clicky so don't have to fully click the switch to move to the next level. However, I don't know which model I have. I bought from BatterySpace because I was ordering some other stuff there.

    It's very good quality switch, made in the USA (amazing they still make stuff here?). I have the the taller version but next time, I would get the shorter version:

    Somebody that's up on switch nomenclature may be able to help you further. I just don't know enough about the various types to make a recommendation.

    I looked at the shorter version, but wasn't sure if there is enough threads for the boot nut to tighten without stripping the threads. The threads are only 0.2" high. The tubing is 0.625". Is ~1/8" of threads enough to secure it with the boot?

    Itess, That's a good-looking setup, but it's a little more work than I want to do. I need to order a battery holder, and these switches are only a couple bucks.

    Scar is using the shorter one on the Amoeba which is the same 1/16" (.0625") tubing so apparently it is enough.
