Yes, I mean a stacked switch.
The writing on the top of the box is hard to read:
TWO SINGLE POLE
Froogle.com-ing for the part number and Leviton yields one result
I am just tired of spending $100's on this type of item $20 at a time
when I know they can't cost much more than $1 to produce. I would even
rather purchase 100 of them at $3 each and use them elsewhere than buy
two at $20.
If you are talking about stacked switches used for normal 15 or 20 amp
circuits, they shouldn't be much more than a normal switch. I bought
several way back when at not much over single switch price IIRC,
definitly not outrageous.
Radio Shack :)-
There are literally thousands of toggle switches. There probably is a
cheaper one but with a lack of specs I couldn't even guess what you want.
Ty www.digikey.com and www.mouser.com both electronics components
distributors have decent websited for searching.
Over/Under is not a technical term used to describe any switch I have ever
seen. Do you mean dual switch handles or DPDT contacts
The site currently appears to be having trouble but I will check them
out again later (hopefully) once they are working.

I spoke to the tech guy at www.dale-electric.com/ and apparently they
are in some sort of effort to redo certain portions of the site. (It
is up now). THANKS A LOT for letting me know about them. Their prices
are very good and I will surely order from them many times -- unless
someone can point me to a site cheaper.
Was in the local hardware store today. They had 2. $10 and $12
something. For the life of me I don't see why they should be so high
when a regular one is in the $1.00 to $2.00 range. Maybe my memory
isn't as good as it once was.
You do point out that this is rated for 20A
Do you really NEED 20A rating ?
Most "home" devices are only 15A rated, so this must be a heavy
duty/industrial/vapor proof/hospital grade switch, and is nothing like the
crap in most houses as far as quality
As such it's not that outrageous to pay that much.
Even a crappy builder grade 15A stacked switch will be $5.00 or more
post the actual manufacturer's name and the part number so we can tell if
you got a deal or not.
There is inefficiency along the way. It's basic economics. As another
poster seemed to indicate, the less units produced the higher their
cost. Not only for the mfgr but further on in the supply chain until
it gets to you. Sure there is a markup on everything, and in this case
the one 20A switch that sat for six months displaced the 20 other 15A
switches that would have moved if the space were available. And the
market will obviously bear what you paid.
Lack of refining capacity might make the price of gasoline go up,
but it would make the price of crude oil go down (lower the demand
for crude oil, and the oil-producers won't be able to demand such
high prices anymore). Since the price of oil has been going up as
well, the only logical conclusion is that not enough crude oil is
