Looking for the electric switch for a a tokheim 36b. I think they used the same switch on other models . I don't think I can salvage this one. Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas to everyone. Ron

Tough to find. Those switches were very susceptible to corrosion.
I have taken some apart and repaired them and I do have a few parts.
It all depends on what part is damaged.
I have posted a picture of the switch that I believe you are talking about.
Maybe someone on this forum has one lying around?

Here are some photos of my switch. I took it off the junction box this morning and have it soaking in solvent. I can tell the roller pin is in the off position . My hope is after soaking , I'll be able to get it completely apart and get working . Thanks Everyone , Ron

OOOooohhhhh! That's a tough one! Soaking always helps but there are several moving parts that need to be really free in order for the switch to work. The fiber material below the roller has to be in good shape too. I can't say you won't get it but it doesn't look good!
