Default Where can I get on old style mains lever switch from.

Hi, I need a matsushita A-S-1 TV3 mains on off lever switch to replace a broken one on an old 70's amp. It's the type where you push an aluminium cover/cap on to the lever shaft I have bypassed it for now but want to get it back to standard. I dont suppose they are available now but any suggestions as to where I could get something similar would be great.

Many thanks.
