    There is a condemned hobo infested wrecking yard relatively close to where I live, so one day I went to it to take pictures (artistic pictures for fun), and I found some rather interesting switches and buttons. I pulled some of them and then went back again the next day to get a few more, some of them are really cool.

    Not only do these buttons look rediculously cool, but they hold a certain satisfaction upon innitiating them. All of the buttons are momentary, some of the switches are momentary as well, but the rest aren't. They keyswitch is my favorite, can be used for a veriety of interesting things.

    Anyway, I am starting an ammo case mod soon and I am using a few of these buttons as the start/reset switch, I think it will add a really cool effect. I have easy access to lots of these buttons, I saw many more keyswitches and mushroom head buttons that I could possibly go back for. If anyone is interested in any of these buttons let me know, if there is enough interest I will go back get more and post a thread in the for sale forum.

    Well i can't take another picture right this second, but the heads of the buttons (the black yellow and red ones) are the size of a quarter. the only rediculously large one is the pinkish one (used to be red, worn down from so much use).

    Are you in the UK or US or somewhere else? If you're in the UK I *might* be interested depending on how my cashflow goes.

    I'd be curious. :) You're right, there's something terribly satisfying about a big ****-off button. ^^

    I'd like to know more about the yellow and black ones if they're not taken. Or can you find more of the same type? Lemme know.
    Or you could "auction" them off. Or is that against forum rules?
    You have my attention.
