Of course the owners in the cases mentioned may just have chosen to source their own switches if they found they could do so more cheaply.
I never saw any adverts. etc for an official kit of switches (and coincidentally, I was tidying up some MK14-related paperwork yesterday). But the late version PCBs could take a keyboard switch that Maplin sold (I think they called it a 'clickswitch') and of course that was mentioned in magazines at the time. Many MK14 owners fitted 20 of those with white caps for the digits and some other colour caps for GO/MEM/ABORT/TERM (where did those names come from??). Obviously you then had to label them with Letraset or similar.
