'[OT]: Where to buy a button cap'

Hi all,

Ok,

I know the subject line is kinda lame, but - here's my problem.

I can find momentary NO pushbuttons that are PCB mount, the problem I have
is the button caps - I need the buttons to extend beyond the case thru a
hole I cut, but I have NO source for button caps - where does everyone go to
get them?  Silkscreening would be a great option - but I am primarily
concerned with just finding a source to buy these button caps.

I'm looking for square, or rectangle small buttons.  Soft touch material
ones are fine, or hard plastic.

Please - anyone - it's getting really annoying to buy crappy radio shack
momentary buttons that are uncomfortable to push and expensive to test
boxes.

-Tony

Digikey has tons.  I've bought rectangluar and square caps for
tact switches, and nice momentary switches with round caps
built-in (or is that built "on"?).

Search for cap on Digikey's site, and peruse the datasheets
for specifics.

Cheers,
-Neil.

Have you tried checking AMP and Amphenol?

Thanks for the info Brendan, I've checked AMP, but not Amphenol.  AMP seems
to want to provide me with punches like telco line or ethernet patch panel
punches...
