Default Sourcing caps for push-buttons

I'm buying some push-button switches. Problem is, they come with a square plastic shaft, no button?

I've looked and can't find anyone selling buttons, let alone decent quality ones.

Does anybody know where to get the caps that push on to them, Im looking for small, round, black and preferbly anodised aluminium but plastic would do.

Have a look at WES Cat No. KNB683 which is black round plastic 10mm x 10mm and fits onto the square shaft..... about AU$0.66 each. No details on their website but in their catalogue.

You can order via email.
