Hey all,
I am looking for some recommendations for switches, specifically for my on/off, high/low, and starter button or single throw switch. I am having to replace ones I got at Radio Shack out of the bins and don't want to have to do this again in a year or two. Thanks.

www.k-four.net has some really nice switches. About double the cost of a cheap switch, but they are worth it.

Honestly, switches are switches...but you get what you pay for. If they're falling apart, that's one thing. If they stop working, its another. Make sure they have a high amperage rating. More often than not, I see guys running toggles/buttons that can't handle the juice.

This is probably the best resource for just about anything you need.

Thanks guys. I'm not worried about spending more to get quality out of them, but when I started I just grabbed what I liked in the bins not thinking about their specs. I plan on mounting them differently this time as well so that might help some.
