I need a few power leads so I don't have to stab at random lead pins with my knife to start my FAH machines.

Anyone know where I can buy power leads WITH momentary switches?

No, but here's what I do: get the momentary switches from my local Radio Shack, some wire and my trusty, all-purpose soldering iron.
:D

Just because most people use little plugs doesn't mean its required;)

Yeah, but the wires aren't as pretty as those orange-and-black twisted pair pre-made switches complete with 2-prong lead connectors! Not to mention the un-ghetto factor. =)

Are you calling my ghetto mods ghetto?:mad:

Oh, wait: they are.
I guess thats ok then :D
lol

I have done some twisting and stuff myself as well, but other than stealing the plugs from other devices or old computers....I haven't found any.

Maybe if we bump this enough someone who HAS found some will see the thread;)
