I mispelled the name, actually.  They're called "Schadow" switch and 
manufactured by ITT Cannon.  I bought them through GC Electronics.  In the 
Electronics catalog number GC-00CG-6567 they're listed under catalog 
number 35-490 and 
are called "Power Pushbutton Switch".  They're a little pricey, around $20.

I suppose you could set them up to switch both conductors.  They're DPDT.  
I don't 
know why you would need to switch both conductors.  I switch only one and 
have never 
had any problems.

A good question...
