   I have had good luck finding 'rare' switches (that I needed to match
exactly to existing ones on a panel) from Electroswitch. They're a bit
pricey and it takes some time to get them, but they will sell
custom-ordered devices in small lots.

   I've used them to match toggle switches on 25-year-old military gear
that I was refurbing.
