This is a real nice original switch - no chips and screw holes all good - choice of face plates - switch w/original brass plate $200 - switch w/repro $175 - I'll pay the postage in the U.S. Drop me a note through here or stevestsatcenturylinkdotnet - you know the drill.

Steve,
I'm interested, but what kind of key fits this switch, and do you have any?

Steve: What I do on the back side of those switches, is I skin a piece of white insulated wire, and save the white part for the back of those switches. McMaster-Carr also sells it, but I don't know what it is called. The 1913 KW switches use the same stuff.

Richard - I'll send you a note and yes, I have the correct pin type key for it.

Larry - I used black sheathing for this switch - it's model train wire !

Steve and Larry, Please tell us more about the black or white sheathing for the back of the switch. What's it for and do you have a picture? I think this might help many of us.

Thanks, Keith

I use my model train wire - might be 22 gauge without digging it out - cut a piece, strip one end and grab a couple of strands and pull - once you get a couple removed, simply pull the rest of the remaining strands out and voila - new switch sealing gasket !
