    It is not the switch that you have to hold down for a few seconds before it will turn off. That is part of the programming on certain sound cards. TCSS does carry the anti-vandal switches in latching and momentary. They do protect from accidental switching a little though. Here is the link to one of those. Make sure you get a bezel or an activation box for it or else it will be too long to fit in the hilt.

    Live long and...I mean May the force be with you.

    Ah yes, I have actually put one switches of those in my cart. I guess I'll just have to wait on a CF or ultrasound board to get that feature.

    So you know, there is an edit button on your post. That will allow you to add to your last post instead of double posting (which is frowned upon here)

    Dude, I said to post your list in the Parts List forum, not here.

    Looks like you're not sure if you'll like the 5 or 10 degree lens best. So why not try both, like you're doing?

    If you plan to swap out LEDs, you're going to need 1 of the 2 wire quick connectors or JST connectors for each LED, if you wire one end right to the LED, like most people do. I can't think of any instance where you would only need one.

    I don't know what a "quick swap LED holder" is, you just need an extra heat sink and thermal tape pad, so don't forget to get that for the P4 LED if you get that.

    If you hope to add sound at some point, you might also want to order a Momentary switch, since, as mentioned, some sound boards need that type of switch.

    It looks like you're trying to order everything you can think of at once, so you don't have to get small orders, because of the shipping to you, which makes sense.

    Also, I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but if you want to get a US 2.5 sound board, you're going to have to watch for someone who's selling theirs, since they are no longer being produced. They are out of stock here forever.

    My humble appologies Jedi Loreen for posting my list in the wrong area and for double posting. My only excuse was that it was very late. I'll remember this for future posts.
    The quick swap LED holder is just another blade holder of a different style and a LED/LENS combination, which is in my list of parts.
    I have already got JST connectors in my list thanks to the post by Rafalema.
    As for the momentary switch, I did have it in the list, then took it out tryting to keep the cost down, but it isn't that much more so I'll put it back in again.
    OK will be placing this order shortly.
    Thanks to everyone for their advice
