That's a rather different question to your other thread.

They don't "all look alike", but yours is probably just a standard "Fine Offset" (Chinese manufacturer) type which AFAIK do all use the same magnetic switch and calibration. Complete replacements are £2.50 from Maplin (White, "Black" or a longer-cable version) and some of their shops even have them in stock, so maybe no need for postage or a minimum order charge. :)

Cheers, Alan.
