Need help finding something.

by epicelite on Sun Mar 08, 2009 12:02 am

I am trying to get a momentary rocker switch.

EX:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0331087245

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayI ... &viewitem=

PROBLEM:
They are all too tall! (From bottom of metal prong to top of switch)
Will not fit for what I want.

WHAT DO I NEED ONE FOR:
I have a mouse designed to be ambidextrous but I use it in my left hand, funny story I am right handed, and I want the side buttons to be on the right side so my thumb can hit them both. :mrgreen:
So I want a momentary rocker switch because it will look better then a couple tact switches sticking out the side.


SOLUTION:
Someone here has to know where to get like a surface mount one or something that is really thin?
THINGS I NEED TO REMEMBER:
If it ant' broke, don't fix it.
