Windlass Foot Switch Source

Need a new foot switch and none of the ones I see online seem to be quite like the one on my '89 35' Egg Harbor with a Maxwell 1500 windlass. Probably the original switches. Not sure if they were made by Maxwell also or not. Anybody know of source for older foot switches? Checked WM, Defender, Maxwell, WMJ, Jamestown, and all the usual.

I'm sure I could use one from WM or the others but would have to drill a larger hole in the deck (no biggy, I've gotten good at putting new/bigger holes in the boat!) but not sure about whether I would run into solenoid incompatibility or wiring issues, etc. Just was hoping to find a source for the same switch.
