hi guys (and gals),

just signed up on this site. wondering if anybody can give me some info about this. what you see in the picture is a copy of the inside of a rotary switch. stamped inside is "A.C. ONLY" , "5Amp 250 V" "Made in England"
. The original outside of the box's is a red anodized aluminum. Any ideas? Any suggestions where I can find the real piece, or who made it and where it was used? I believe it was out of the 80's. Outside dimensions is a little less 2 by 2 inches.

Lets just say, for a moment, that they are no longer made, AND no one has one in stock anywhere. You would HAVE to fit a new one of some description !

true, but i'm not at this point yet. first and foremost i need to identify it first, then search for avaialbility. the search for the availability is entirely my problem, but trying to get input who made those, etc. is hopefully what this forum and their members can help me with....

Can you get a picture of the front of the switch. Realistically there is more chance of identifying it. What is it the switch off, this might also give a clue as to where and who made it

that's the problem, i don't have a front cover, and i don't know where it was used. that's what i'm actually trying to find out first. i need it for a side project. and i'm hoping that maybe one of you (or more) had one in his or her hands and steer me in the right direction.

i can take more pics but would be only from the inside of the box. yes i agree the second pic is rubbish. but those are the best i can come up with. doesn't the printed info inside give some help? or is it to "general"?
