Switch Panel

Anybody recommend somewhere to get a 3 switch panel 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", something like this one or better?



Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Rich

Buy yourself some switches and circuit breakers, and then get your local signmaker/engraver to make you a panel out of Traffolyte.

A panel like that, custom made with parts shouldn't cost you more than 40.00, and it'll be to your unique spec.

Advice from Dirk is always worth listening to however if you don't want to go down the custom route then Blues Sea systems switches are the Biz. You can get em from Aquafax or other places

Yip - I'd second that. Got some nice 10Amp toggle switches from maplin along with rubber covers. Added some LED's as indicators and have ended up with 8 way switch panel that's smaller than most 4 ways.

Fuses are hidden in a nice accesible fuse box in the console where they stay dry.

There must be pleanty places could make the panel to order with a plasma cutter (and even engrave it). I did it myself but it's a fair amount of effort but looks great.

Fused panels are pretty expensive so I'm going to take the lazy but quick and sensible option and use the existing panel but swap the components. Thanks for the good advice.
