I called and asked if I could send it back. Yep, I decided this little lady needed a little bling. The felt's a good idea, and I like the idea of a flickering circuit!

Shortly after that I ordered a second one. Finish the hole with a 10mm drill bit 15mm depth. I purposely gave it some texture with the paint. To do this, I inserted the switch, dropped on the nut, then used a pair of tweezers to keep the nut in place while I rotated the switch by hand.
