I just acquired an original Apple II power supply A2M001, nice low serial 8603. It is great all-original condition and still works, except that the original mechanical power switch is stuck. Of course I would like to replace the power switch so it works. The question is, what would you do to fix it?
First, the two aluminum rivets that secure the PS enclosure were already removed by the previous owner. I determined that this was done to hard-wire the switch to be "always on". So nothing is lost by opening this supply, since the original rivets were already removed anyways.
So what switch to get? It looks like the ReactiveMicro.com switch doesn't fit the early model A2M001 supplies. Not sure why, maybe the square cut-out is different from the later model supplies? Is there another place that sells switches that would fit?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
