    Hello Lopero,

    I think you can buy a cheap real switch like this one (it's my room's switch :P) and resize the buttom if you don't find any of the measures you want. If you need it bigger you can use plasticard. If you need it smaller you can cut it with a dremmel and then use plasticard to cover the hole you have created. But be careful, you want to keep untouched the flip-flop system inside. Now... you only need to create the electric circuit with your REAL switch! If you don't know how to do it I can help you with it. Just ask
