Hey Beej, what I've done in the past is bend up a piece of .050 aluminum in a "c" bracket in the center is a hole the switch goes through, then the sides are radiused to match the throw. Paint it black and it looks real good, works good and is simple.

Beej,

Try searching for wire bail or instrumentation handles.
Keystone electronics has some. I think you are looking for smaller ones though.

Beej, try a web searchPerihelion Design. They have all sorts of cool stuff and have a couple that may do the trick.Edit;I type too slow so have been beaten to the punch once more.Ihave used a few bits from them and they have been pretty good to deal with.
