Short stem illuminated buttons?
« on: May 12, 2017, 01:12:27 am »
I've been working on building a bartop arcade from CNC cut kit I bought on Etsy and finally getting to the point where I'm hooking up buttons, but realized that I have a space issue in my control panel.

From this picture you can see that the front panel has three button holes

But after wiring everything up, the front-panel buttons don't fit with the added depth of the microswitches

Rather than try and recut the control panel myself to make more space for the button stems, I was trying to find some illuminated buttons with a shorter stem

I found these with built-in microswitches, but they won't let me pick the button colors I want - so I'd end up spending $24 for the three buttons I need in order to get two red and one white

I looked through the vendors forum here and none seemed to have what I needed.Does anyone know of another shop that sells short-stemmed illuminated buttons like these that will let me buy them loose?
