I doubt you'll get any samples from Digikey. However, you can get really cheap shipping, so for small orders, it ends up being no more than $2-3.

Here's a magnetic read switch with a 1A capacity, should do the job: http://search.digikey.com/us/en/prod...1091-ND/302007

This is what I ordered, which didn't work I ordered five, and after the third one did the same thing I stopped testing them.

Charles, you and John are not referencing the same reed switch.

Your switch was rated at half an amp. John's was rated at one amp. big difference.

I saw some rated even more, but they were starting to get pretty large. However, you might order a couple of the higher rated ones as well.

Here's a 1.5A one: http://search.digikey.com/us/en/prod...E546-ND/313610
