Thought I would give a heads up to those that are getting ready to buy the key switch. 

I am working on my instrument panel on my 750 and I have been getting an order together on Aircraft Spruce. Things like the master switch, starter contactor, battery contactor and the key switch to name a few. Spruce HAD the price for the ACS Key Switch A-510-2 for around $150, I just now noticed that they have raised their price to $187.75 + tax and shipping. Just the switch would be well over $200.00 total now. Spruce always kills me on shipping. 

I found that Gulf Coast Avionics still has the key switch for $149.00 no tax and no shipping to Tennessee. I ordered it tonight and saved over $50.00.

Guess it's too late for you, Steve, but there's a brand new one on Ebay with two matching lock tumblers for $95/free shipping!



Thank you John! I canceled my order from Gulf Coast and snatched the EBay switch up!

Whoop!  Saved me over $100!
