Default Two position rotatory switch with spring return wanted

Well, the subject line says it al. I have been looking extensively for a regular 1 pole rotatory switch with two momentary positions that return to the midposition when released. Low power application. Sound simple but pretty difficult to find. Can someone point me in the right direction (preferably EU due to shipping but US no problem at all).

Hi Pinkmouse,
Thanks, but with the keywords 'rotatory; switch; spring; return' I do not get good results. Do you by chance know which thread? Thx!

Sounds like a hard thing to find. I would check allied electronics. There are a few others places too.

This is the thread about the rotary switch.

Help with rotary switch type

This switch is hard to find for consumer equipment, but you have better option is you look for industrial control.

Hi guys, thanks for your responses. I may have found a reasonably priced alternative. See:
http://kwx.hardware.nl/p/ROCKWELL/800FPSB32
Its description in English can be found here:
http://www.ab.com/en/epub/catalogs/2...5391/tab3.html
Price is 7.60 Euro a piece.
All I have to do is try to remove that knob and hopefully a 6mm shaft is behind it.

The Allen-Bradley 800F-PSB32 selector is just the top part.
You will need the bottom parts (Base + contacts)

But there is no shaft in this device, the selector have 2 cams to activate the contacts.
