Default Recommendation and source for rotary stereo selector

I'm looking for a recommendation for a rotary stereo selector with two to four selector positions and have a long shaft (roughly 1") in order to clear my chassis front panel.

I think an Elma 04-1344 with a 25mm shaft might fit the bill.

Does anyone know of a Nth American source for this part?

Most electronics distributors sell stuff like that. In fact, one inch isn't considered a long shaft; most come with around 3" or so shafts and you have to saw them to suit your needs.

The old line manufacturers, Mallory, Clarostat, Switchcraft, Oak, and so on seem to have faded away and now we have Alps and Omron, etc.

It has been many many years since I bought that sort of thing, but if my memory serves me well, we could buy the switches as parts. In other words you bought the shaft assembly, then the switch wafers, and then spacers and hardware, all separately. Maybe those days are gone.

Consider digikey, which offers Grayhill switches. I like GH7104-ND, though the shaft on that model may be too short for your application.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I've gone with an ALPS SRRN134 for this project.

This is an open before close switch. Hope that is okay as the wiper will not be connected to anything between switch points.

I would need help finding right selector. I would need it for stereo and selecting 3 or 4 sources. Which one would you recommend?
