In the universe of reed switches, we're assured that this one is quite snazzy. In a 1" x 9/16" x 3/8" housing with a 3/8" mounting wing with (2) 3/32" mounting holes. Trigger distance is approx 1" regardless of magnet strength. Comes with 20" tinned leads. Rated for 400mA at 24VDC. Normally open.
These momentary SPST push-button switches are normally open and measure 11/16" dia x just over 3/16" thick and have a 15/32" shaft with a steel lock-washer & nut plus a pair of 1/8" solder terminals on the bottom. Rated 3A at 125VAC or 1A at 250VAC. You pick red, green or yellow.
These vacuum-sealed glass-cylinder switches have bimetal contacts inside. Normally open, they make contact at approx 500°F. Our vacuum-sealed-bimetal-switch boffin calls the leads "pretty skinny" and suggests low-power applications only. Measure 1-1/8" x 1/2" dia with 3/4" long leads.
An LED that really shines. The red LED is configured with a resistor and works at 9-12 volts. It's held by a 1-5/8" bracket behind a 1-1/4" x 7/16" x 5/16" deep SPST slide switch, and has (2) 4" leads. All ready to roll.
The four positions on this 2" x 1-5/16" x 7/8" rotary switch represent the four seasons of the year. The spring position turns on terminals 1 and 5. The summer position turns on all of the terminals. The fall position turns on terminals 2,3,5 and 6. On the winter setting, the time of year when all is quiet and dead, none of the terminals are turned on. All of the terminals have spade connectors and terminals 2 and 3 are joined. The switch has a 7/8" x 1/4" dia. fluted shaft and is mountable via. (2) threaded holes on the face plate. 25 amp at 125 VAC max.
Just like your love life?? This switch turns between on and off when the 1/4" dia x 7/8" long shaft is rotated 90°. Rated 120 VAC, 10 amps, it is 1-1/2" x 1" x 1" deep. (2) threaded mounting holes on the face plate and (2) spade connectors complete the picture.
One of our truly unusual treasures. It's a used 28 VDC single-pole/single-throw toggle switch, possibly military surplus. A sensor mounted on it is labeled Oxygen Warning Switch. We think that means that it switches off in the presence of pure oxygen, the better to keep from blowing something to kingdom come with an errant spark. Overall, it's 3-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 1", not counting the 3/4" toggle. The 3-pole sensor itself is under a black-painted aluminum cover 1-1/2" high x 7/8" dia. (3) leads, (3) holes in its right-angle mounting bracket. We're just not sure what it is that would be blown up if it weren't there.
An old standard from Gardner-Bender®. Their rotary switch is an SPTT (single pole triple throw) rated for up to 6A at 125VAC for both of the loads it can switch. Measures 1" x 7/8" x 3/8" with a 5/8" x 3/8" dia double flattened shaft. UL/CSA.
