should only stick out of the backplate a bit, but I don't know if it will work for your purpose.

I am afraid not this is only a 2 pole slide switch, it needs to be a 4 pole and have 12 solder lugs on the back and this one only has 6, so 2 of these would do the job [;)] but thank you for chiming in with a suggestion Casey, greatly appreciated [:)]

Paul you are getting toooooo excited about the "Steroid Fly" mate.......calm down.......calm down [:D]

To be honest I would really like to use a 4 pole Slide switch fixed to the back of the cavity cover, but need one with fixing tabs, so keep looking guys [:)]

Parkerman---Until you find that slide switch,

http://www.marvac.com/detail.aspx?ID=22950    Yeah, It is pretty bulky and kind of clumbsy, but this vendor just might have the slide.

Come to thinking of it, I did have some slide switches on my Fender Jaguar when I was a Kid. I think the Jaguar and the Jazzmaster are still made.

I started out in life with nothing and still have most of it left!

Ha ha, yeah what can I say? I'm a diehard Parker man! [:D]

I've never seen a four pole slide switch before. In fact I've never even seen one that was more than two poles. But I haven't looked for anything like that either. [:I]

Could this slide switch fit the bill?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-Pcs-DC-50V-0-3A-4P2T-ON-ON-Positions-Slide-Switch-/390398391132?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae58eb35c#ht_1931wt_912

It has 12 contacts and mounting holes.

Tectonix you have hit the jackpot, perfect [:)] that is a 4 pole 2 way On-On Slide switch and yes it has mountiung holes, sadly he is not offering a BIN or listed that he has more than one, I will mail the guy and see what he has in stock............nice score Tectonix [;)]

EDIT: This auction is for a pack of 10x pieces......[:D] happy PMan.......I will try to win the 10 switches and if you want one then pay for carriage and it is yours [;)]

Parkerman, I've been thinking about bypassing the preamp for the mags on my 2007 refined Deluxe, so if you win, put me down for one of those switches.  Thanks.

Casey I have not seen the circuit for the refined Fly, the mods I have listed here are for the Pre-Ref Fly only, however if someone could mail me the circuit or post it here then I will have a look at it, but please appreciate I could not endorse any mods I make as I do not have a refined Fly to check them out with, but it may be a similar circuit topology to the original hopefully [;)]

Glad I nailed it Pman and thanks for your generosity. Well, you know, I do have a refined Fly also and if I wouldn't be acting too much like the swine at the trough, I would like one for each. Although they are pretty cheap (and good quality, we hope), I do want to pay for anything you might send my way. Actually, we all should have made hefty contributions to your retirement account for all the expertise you have passed to us[:D][8D].  I will keep checking the post or email me through my profile info.

I understand.  Is this the schematic you need?

Casey that is the circuit I have been using for the pre-refined Fly, if this is also the refined Fly circuit then the mods apply to both pre-refined and Refined

I'm pretty sure it's not. The part labeled Mono/Stereo Push Switch is a dead giveaway - the refined models don't have it.

That schematic Casey attached above is for the pre-refined Fly. I've never seen a schematic for the PowerChip pop up anywhere yet.
