Default rotary selector

Where can I buy "break before make'' rotory selectors? I would like them to be low cost,they will not carry any signals.

quite a few hits on google if you search for;
break before make, maybe add your city name to shorten the number of finds...

It depends, how many poles/positions do you need? Mouser has a decent selection, dont have my catalog here with me, but I imagine digikey does also.

Hi,
most retailers will stock both types.
Just specify which you need.
Maplin and many others sell multi way rotaries in both make before break and break before make. eg. 1 way 12 position through 2 way, 3 way and 4 way to 6 way 2 position.

You might be able to salvage one out of a twenty year old television. The VHF dial.
