    BMC40M Tool Relase Button

    Hi there
    the tool release button on the side of the head on my BMC40M 1994 has broken. i took the button out and all the insides have fallen apart. does anyone know if i can just buy any replacment button. i asume its a normally open button so maybe could get a 2 pole momentary button from RS components and fit that
    thanks in advance for any help
    Ben

    Just measure the mounting hole dimensions and find a suitable button that fits it. eBay, DigiKey, or your local electronic parts store if you have one nearby.

    Is it really a 2-pole button though? If it has 2 contacts, it's "single pole single throw" (SPST). Not nitpicking, just making it easier for you to find the right one.
