    It was at the local store. They have a large bin with all different types of switches. I picked up a few different ones for some other projects also. I don't know if it is gold plated, But it works just as good as the original.

    Thanks Jeff. I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out. When are you going to add the Veneer option to the lineup? Just kidding, kinda...

    A friend of mine asked why I prefer the Chuck to my V3 or ego and I handed it to him and said, "this hits harder."

    One puff and several coughs later, he agreed.

    That is outstanding!!! I think the "Uncle Dakon's Woody" Chuck may need an makeover...

    You sure? I can't imagine the Chuck using an under rated 0.5A 50 switch. Looks can be deceiving.

    There's lots of similar looking switches with much better specs and construction.

    I'd feel more comfortable with a 3A switch from a respected manufacturer like this.

    Yeah I just looked at it again, .5A 125v made in Japan, no other markings. So far with the new switch I have had no misfires, hard presses or other problems. Voltage to the connector measures 6.2 v. I don't have a load voltage checker so I can't measure that, but it's working fine.

    I did have to rebuild the atty connector because the rubber separator for the positive lead had rotted and it was shorting intermittently, but other than that, she works just fine.

    Thank you! This was really helpful to me. I dropped my little chuck one too many times on cement and caused the switch to be on permanent "on." I went to radio shack and got the switch, followed your instructions, and it's working fine!

    Yeah, these damn things tend to jump right out of your hands don't they?
