I need to replace a broken limit switch, but I am at a loss as to which one to purchase and from where.

After spending almost all of yesterday scouring the internet, I believe this is the correct switch. Can anyone confirm if it is?

If this is the correct switch, can anyone recommend a seller? Shipping from "Robot Shop" is over five times the cost of just one switch.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I have an Ultimaker Original, and my first thought was to order the limit switches pack from the Ultimaker store, but the cost with shipping is over $30 US.

    If I could find a limit switch somewhere closer I'd be a happy man, since I could then put the savings on shipping towards buying more filament.

    Thanks for replying!

    Also, I am 99% positive this is the switch used in the Ultimaker 1.

    I ordered from "robotshop.com" and after a week they came in the mail from China. Unfortunately, the holes for the bolts were too small. I managed to find some tiny nuts and bolts, so the printer is working, but i'm going to order replacements from digikey so they're correct.
