Thanks Smarte for the info.  The switch you mention is $6.64 at Mouser plus another $6.95 shipping, less than 1/3 the price of the fanswitch guy. Rather than grind down the terminals of the switch, it would probably be easier to snip off the wire terminals and crimp on some new ones.

the terminals are probably 3/16", so you can match those at any electrical or auto supply parts.

(still no luck getting 5/16" though  :tickedoff: >:( :( ;D  )

Reason for not changing the terminals and make them all the same size is to prevent you from putting the wrong wire on the wrong terminal of the switch.  I guess it is a safety thing so that was incorporated in the original switch's design.  Trimming the oversize terminals takes much less time than cutting the ends off/striping the wire/replacing terminals with new terminals and then risking that the wire is too short :(    Since you have to unplug the wires several times it is easy to forget which wire went on any specific terminal.   To each his own.  Glad I could help.
