Does anyone know where to obtain an Orpin switch? This is the switch that's mentioned in Josh's book. JC Whitney only has 12 volt switches now.
Maybe these can be rewired to use on 6 volt??

Set this up as a search on eBay. Try "Orpin" and "6-12 volt switch". They appear regularly.

Incidentally, the book referred to was [i:3pfopkht]How To Maintain and Enjoy Your Collector Car[/i:3pfopkht] from 1995. It's coming out again next year in a color version, tentatively titled [i:3pfopkht]Keeping Your Collector Car Alive[/i:3pfopkht]. (Heckuva name.) It will be part of Motorbooks's "Workshop Series".

I found that the Antique Auto Battery Co. has a dual battery setup with a switch similar to an Orpin. Right now I'm trying to find out if they will sell the switch as a separate item.
