Thunder II-A SWITCHES? Empty Thunder II-A SWITCHES?

Post by psafloyd Fri Apr 19, 2024 8:50 am

I did post this on the FB site, but I've always had better success here.

Hive mind, I seek your assistance.
I managed to purchase some six gang DPDT switches to replace those on a Thunder IIA I recently acquired.
However, it wold seem I have selected ON–OFF–ON switches, rather than the ON–ON I believed I had selected.
Can you advise whether can be made to do the job? If so, what needs to be done differently?
If not, does anyone know what use these might be put to?
Also, does anyone know where one might acquire similar switches that are six gang DPDT with the wide baton?
Finally, I'm also looking for the DPDT EIGHT GANG switch used for the gain control.
Does anyone know where to find the eight gang switch for the gain control? And again, if not available, is there something that will suffice?

Hmmm...this is the second request for these in a week.

And I still don't have an answer except to talk to Mr Google.  Thinking

Perhaps one of our members has some info.  Westbone, can you help? Hello Wave

Apologies. I moved the request as I feared I may have buried it in an old thread. 

I have already scoured Google, as I'm pretty good at it. And while Furnells may have something, many are ON/ON/ON or ON/OFF/ON variants.  

Also struggling for any 4DPT (?) switches.

After many hours of searching, I finally found what look to be the right switches on CPC. 

If they turn out to be the right ones, I shall update this thread with links, because that was an awful lot harder than it actually needed to be.

Right, after spending an inordinate amount of time searching for the right switches*, I ordered these at the weekend. I've not installed them, yet, but I believe they are the correct ones. 

The phase and coil tap switches are listed as "[url= https://cpc.farnell.com/multicomp/1md1t6b11m1qe/switch-dpdt/dp/SW02868]MULTICOMP 1MD1T6B11M1QE  Panel Mount Flat Toggle Switch, DPDT, On-On, 5A, Silver Contacts[/url]".

The gain switch is listed as "MULTICOMP 1M41T6B11M1QE  Panel Mount Flat Toggle Switch, 4PDT, On-On, 5A, Silver Contacts".

Hope that helps.

* So difficult, because many places purported to have them on Google, for me to discover they didn't even carry this type of switch at all. Even in the CPC/Farnell catalogue, double checking the items was nigh on impossible, because the technical data sheets for the switches were either short of certain information, or generic ones, often for different switches, though within the same range. It was infuriating, but we got there in the end.

Wow, that was a Herculean task eh?

Unfortunately there is a problem with your first link. Could you revisit that and edit it please? Second one is good.

Many thanks for the effort.
Meanwhile I shall "sticky-fy" this post for posterity! Smile
