[Help] Bulgarian site selling interesting switches

I found this Bulgarian site:

http://ppetkov-sz.com/buttons.html

They have:

  • Real Cherry M9, which I could always use more of (though probably just vanilla linear SPST)
  • ИЗОТ 0125Д (IZOT 0125D), the Bulgarian M9 clone
  • The Bulgarian reed switch, listed only as "keyboard button" (Клавиатурен бутон), so no new ID there!

I've tried twice to contact them by e-mail, and, well, crickets. They don't list any stock levels, nor do they list any prices. I suspect they won't be particularly cheap, but I imagine I am not the only person who'd like some of these parts.

However, they may not speak English! They may also just be awkward, as I niubio tried to reach two separate Polish merchants for me, and they won't even respond in Polish! (I wanted some NOS Unitra Dolam reed switches. Seems that this won't happen.)

Heyyy, I recognise those reed switches, cool find! Can't help you with Bulgarian I'm afraid, but certainly a fun discovery :) .

Just to clear up any doubt, I'd like at least five each of the three switches listed, but of course it's impossible to give a required quantity because prices can range from the absurd (150 Siemens STB short throw for £23.34 delivered) to the absurd (STRONIC charge a ludicrous €10 per switch but they will sell them singly — still steep enough that I've yet to commit to buying one each of their extensive Clare/Pendar selection or the other interesting goodies they stock, and with this exorbitant sum you don't even get someone who's willing to dig out any data they have on them).

(I need at least one of each, but a spare helps in case I break one trying to get it apart, and extra switches are nice for group shots.)

Just a quickie: The shop has the Cherry switches, not sure about the Cherry clone nor the weird switch with the yellow housing. The guy has to check his warehouse first and get back to me. I've asked for pricing information as well. The shop only posts to Bulgarian addresses, but my friend said he can forward them to me.

More to follow as I hear back!

Hi, I'm from Bulgaria and I could ask them for price and quantity.

It seems that someone's already asked. I think 10ko has also asked them, but unfortunately I don't think he really understands me, and I don't speak Bulgarian :P However, I wanted to keep this discussion public so that anyone else who wants to join in can get some switches, assuming they're actually still for sale!
