Oh, and momentary rotary-switches are actually easy to find, if you know the right places. In scandinavia we have elfaelectronics
for all the electronics we need, and they have a variety of momentary rotary switches. They ship to the rest of the world aswell.
I even found one on amazon.com
for $9.95 that should suit you well
Cheers for the advice JRS. A volume controller would be a great addition. Didn't even realise you could set up a volume control knob except by using a soundcard with front panel controller. Any suggestions on how to do this?
Had a look on the elfaelectronics site and they had a lot of similar components to what I have seen on the UK sites (Farnell and RS components). Nothing there that I can find that is quite suitable although I may be missing it due to not knowing the terminology. The amazon one, I think, uses a notched control knob to activate a push switch and doesn't have a shaft to which I could fix the original radio knobs.
