Gives me a headache to think about it.
It would be a hundred miles for me to get to a big electronics supply house, so mail order is probably my best bet. Who came up with this idea? Hat's off to whoever it was. If I bought 50 I'd have to sell some of them off on the forum. I can see where it would need to be a roller type and not just a lever.
PM me with your address. I'll send you one.
