All Wave 23 ON-OFF Switch Needed

I need to locate a replacement on/off switch for my ALL WAVE 23. The original switch has become defective and is apt to turn off the set unexpectedly and without warning. Is somebody offering a new version of this switch? If I need to look for a NOS switch, or one taken from a vintage set, what should I be asking for?    Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.EricSee More
