Where can I find cheap key switches? Answered

I need a momentary key switch, like the ones in car ignition switches for an upcoming project. I also need one that toggles. Like these, but from a cheaper source.

I'm not sure you're going to find much cheaper. That doesn't seem all that expensive to me.

Just wondering if I can get a better deal, haven't ever bought a key switch before. I just wanted to make sure I'm not getting screwed, lol. I don't like they key styling on the momentary switch, though.

Actually, I did some more research. You probably could find some a lot cheaper. Try searching through www.digikey.com . Here's one possible option I found.
