If you want toggles, this ain't bad. It includes around 40 switches, but I can't vouch for any of them being the right ones ! Buy it now - $125

Well now I am mad. I just purchased a Waltham clock from ebay and the seller sends me a message saying that ebay put a hold on his product and my money.  :grumbl: :grumbl:. I was about to tear into ebay but the seller refunded me the money. I still don't have a clock though. :bat: :bat: :bat:

He is telling you the truth too.
That is why I no longer sell on Ebay.
They are making money on your money, holding it in their bank collecting intrest on it. :bat:

He says that he is willing to sell it to me outside of ebay, but now the problem is the risk that I have to take sending him money without any security.

Tim,
Great score, dude! Guys, this is how you can fill out your panels cheap. Almost all of the software for programming switches lets you configure them how you need, so dont be scared to mix and mismatch them. If you have to have them totally real, then at least fill the holes till you get the correct ones. Some of them dont work in BMS anyway so use the wrong ones there.
Examples:
EXT LIGHTING, only one of the WING/TAIL switches is used.
FUEL panel, TANK INERTING is not used and you would NEVER turn off the MASTER fuel switch.
NUCLEAR CONSENT does nothing. There are more, try them. Just roll the cursor over the switch and see if it changes. A lot do work though, thanks to the incredible Dev team that is obsessed with making BMS real. Real pilots check their work down to the last detail. Everyone ows them a huge thank you for their efforts.

Cheers  :)
I got heaps of my switches using this method. There are lots of commercial Boeing panels out there and a lot of them are at least worth a close look..

Would this by any chance be the same force sensor used in the original stick ?

The original stick uses multiple, redundant LVDTs. Completely different technology. Pressure transducers like this typicaly have a diaphram with strain gages. Some transducers have the electronics inside, as this one apparently does.
