Gew,

do you want to mount the switches actually on the Vero board ?

Most toggle switches have the pins at the wrong pitch, and usually too big for the Vero board holes, which is very annoying sometimes, making direct mounting tricky. Even the PCB mount toggle switches I sometimes use are at the wrong pitch for Vero board. Most toggle switches are really designed for panel mounting.

I used to solder Vero Pins to the board, and then the toggle switch to the pins. You could also make the board holes slightly larger but it sometimes looks a little scrappy depending on the switch.

You may do better with slide switches. A couple of the smaller ones look like they could be "persuaded" to fit.

For a fairly reasonable selection of switches, try Rapid Electronics if your in the UK.

Beware that you will get stung for around £5 postage if your order is under a certain limit (I think it's £30).

If its just a couple of switches your looking for, you might do better with ESR (www.esr.co.uk), again in the UK. From memory, their postage was better for smaller orders, tho their parts may be more expensive.
