Hi Guys
Managed to snap off one of the 3 metal switches on my Thunder IA, does anyone have a replacement or know where I can source one?
Thanks
Andy

Not to worry, I found the answer in another part of the forum: ON-ON double pole with a flat handle for anyone else looking.

Yeah... they're not too hard to track down! The local electronics store here has a fairish selection of switches and I generally have a couple hanging around...

Those mini toggles can be a PITA. Not always easily accessible but easily damaged.

Mats and other manufacturers of the time eventually changed to pull/push pots which made better sense for most players and of course saved on parts and labour costs.
