MITS Altair 8800b switches needed

I am desperately seeking NOS, working pulls or accurate replacement
switches for my MITS 8800b.

These are flattened paddle switches, both ON-OFF and MOM-Off-MOM type.
SPDT, Panel mount, solder post with a 15mm actuator.  This last part is the
pain as everything I've found is 10mm or less.

I've checked every online source that I know of plus all of the local
electronics and surplus shops with no luck.

I'm sure someone here has a stash or knows someone who does.  I need at
least one of each type but would prefer a few more as I do have a few
marginal switches to replace if I can.

I'd even buy a complete 8800b D/C board if that's what it took.

Please email me at my webmaster@ "vintage-computer.c0m" address if you can

Thank you!
