RE: Looking for a rocker Switch for Busicom
Thanks a lot! it seems they are not the exact type...I shall follow searching.
I am also thinking about reconstructing the broken contacts area, which is the missing part.

A lot of the time switch styles don't go out of fashion (and hence don't go out of production... if there's a need there's always a supply), but I'm not sure you'll get one precisely this style, as they mostly now have built-in surrounds.

Anyway , take a look through this for a starter:

Find the part number first and then go googling for that, they do a long rocker version.

You have to study the datasheet carefully to check all the options, then build your part number, it's a painstaking process, something I have to do from time to time.

Other big players in rocker switches are ALPS, Arcoelectric, TE Connectivity and APEM maybe.

Last tip is look all over that old switch for any numbers or symbols that might hint as to manufacturer and/or type.
