Twist on/off switch.....

Ok this may just be me being retarded at searching. But i can't seem to find a turn/twist on/off switch. Everything is either rocker or push. I am wanting to use the factory style heater/wiper switch and use it on a twist style on/off switch. I am planning on making a plate to cover my radio hole and wanted to utilize this for aux lights but wanted to keep the factory knobs......

Why not just use a wiper switch with a knob?

Perhaps you could rig it so that when you use the "push" function for the wiper switch, you get an aux light flash?

ya i was going to use that as a last resort. Being that the wiper switch has more than one function. I was hoping i could find just a simple on/off switch....

It might be your best bet especially if you wanted to keep the stock knobs. I googled "rotary single throw, single pole switch" and "rotary on-off switch" and came up with a few, but honestly the stock replacement for the windshield wipers might be the best choice.
