Want to start out with a big Thank You to Kim Frank for all his assistance in getting these switches brought back to life.  The example we have made available is much stronger than the original ge porcelain switches.  We made a decision to only offer the "eared" switch bodies, for back mounting these "ears" can be cut off and sanded smooth.  The shaft that holds the knob and pointer will need to be shortened and additional threads added.  Depending on sales, we may issue 2 speed only versions at a later date.  For 2 speed applications 2 jumper wires will need to be soldered to the contacts.  We are happy to help with any questions you have for installation.

I looked in my stash, I actually have 7 switches, out of 12 pancakes. I plan to wall mount several of mine after I start reproducing the wall mount knuckles, and those will run on Variacs mounted in the wall. So I will let others have a chance to get switches. If they don't sell(yeah right!) I'll buy what he has left.
