Unfortunately the light switch mechanism is no longer made of true Bakelite and is now manufactured in brown plastic still using quality Clipsal components.
The cover is made from high grade pressed brass manufactured here in Australia to give the high quality standard we are use to as per the original switch sold by Clipsal.
The appearance of the Bakelite dolly mechanism is extremely close to the original Bakelite Switch produced by Clipsal in earlier years.
Clipsal Part Number No 363 Series.
Manufacturing of the true Bakelite Mechanisms and Sockets ceased some years ago so unless stated "Genuine Bakelite" you will find all of these Switches in the market place are in fact made of plastic.
