Trying to locate an unusual switch


I am trying to locate a rocker switch with a bit of an unusual setup. I would like it to be the following configuration. It needs to be at least a 3 terminal, but something like a 6 terminal is ok as long as it's setup as below-

ON-OFF-MOMENTARY ON

I should add, it's virtually no current, it's 12 volt that maybe draws a 20th of an amp. It's just a digital voltage display that I want to be able to have illuminated steady or off and I could get a glance at it my hitting "momentary on".

Thanks John, that would be great. All the guys around here that supply our dealership are giving me the deer-in-the-headlights look when I ask for this.

That is exactly it. However, I don't know anyone around here who has Acklands stuff.

Does it not give a part number?

I haven't dealt with Acklands for 20 years! Do they do walk in traffic at the Winnipeg locations? Years ago I think they were strictly a wholesaler to the parts stores etc.

Anyone from Winnipeg done a walk-in at one? I'm close to the Scurfield location when I go to Winnipeg.

In Calgary at our shop we would place the order on the phone (make sure it's in stock or til it came in) 

Once in, they would deliver or we would make a pick up at the place if in a hurry.

They no longer sell walk in retail unless you have an account. Can't trust counter staff with cash I guess.

Thanks to all of you. I went back to my local electrical guy this morning and he had not understood me. We found one in his book.

Most places allow walk-ins as they make more money charging retail price.

You can also try Digi-Key Electronics. www.digikey.ca. Shop-Vac wanted to sell me a $60.00 motor assy. for the on-off switch. Bought four switches with shipping for about $12.00. Printed catalog was about 2-1/2" thick. They have a lot of unusual electronics.
