If you'll forgive the somewhat off topic post, I have a problem with which I was hoping model railroaders might be able to help me.
For a purpose other than models (speakers), I need 4 knife switches that I'd like to be either nice and retro looking, or at least somewhat fancy if new. Something like brass blades mounted on a wooden base... or even a nice ceremic one. All I can find is this little black plastic and steel one, which would admittedly work fine, but looks sort of cheesy.
Anyway, right or wrong, my mental image of model railroads have these switches on them, and I figured you'd want your setup to look attractive too. We'll see...
