Apologies if this isn't the appropriate SE for this question. If not, any pointers to a more appropriate place would be appreciated.
I'm looking to swap out some toggle switches on a R/C controller. I'd like to be able to shop online for the new switches and look at a variety of styles, but I'm confused about the keywords I should use when specifying the size. The switches are the thru-hole panel mount type with with bushing and nut to fasten them.
When looking online some sources don't specify the bushing size, they just specify "miniature", "sub-miniature" or "ultra-miniature" toggle switches. I haven't been able to easily figure out how these classes of switches differ.
I measured a roughly 1/4" hole in my controller, and I've seen a miniature switch say it has a 1/4" bushing, but then a sub-mini switch spec showed a .240" bushing. This seems like such a small difference I'm not sure if that's actually the difference between "mini" and "sub-mini".
So, what do these terms indicate?
