Parts Sourcing Help?! "Radiohm ST1042" switches

Post by Luap » Wed Nov 06, 2019 1:02 pm

Greetings folks.

Might anyone know where I could find some Radiohm ST1042 momentary push button switches?
They are for my old Doepfer MAQ 16/3. It has 8 of them, and one of them double triggers sometimes.
Doepfer no longer has any, and neither does EMIS in Bristol.
I've tried pumping the thing full of contact cleaner, and it's not doing the trick, so needs replacing.. Any ideas?

Obviously i've googled, but results throw up a bunch of companies im not familiar with that are not neccesserily selling the part anyway..

Found some ST1034's on ebay uk but they are green and 10mm by 10mm. You need rectangular not square I think ? Maybe you could contact the seller and ask ?

^ Thanks for looking! I did see those there, and yes I need rectangular ones. However, I don't even have an ebay account. I don't mind what colour they happen to be though..

Checkout as a guest?
I do that when I have a brain fart and cannot remember my details.

Well now look what you've gone and done! I never knew you could do that on ebay.. Who knows what kind of junk i'll end up accumulating from there now!? :hihi:

I guess i'll just keep an eye on there then.. I expect some will show up sooner or later 8-)
