Hi Lloyd
The switches are one of the more expensive components. I know a constructor that used different phono sockets but he said he wouldn't do it again as it was more trouble than it was worth. It may be same with the switches.

I just took delivery on Friday of one of these lots. They are the 2 position type. I couldn't find any 3 position types on the same site. I have tested one in a PCB and the foot print is correct. The quality is not as good as the ones listed in the parts list but are probably OK. The actuator is longer than the ones listed in the parts list.

RS Stock No. 734-7132 a 3 position type. It has a longer actuator than the one from AliExpress.
