Need help buying a switch

I'm wanting to buy two (2) of the Mark Time series 42 time delay switches to put in my bathrooms and can't find a place to buy them. These switches allow you to turn off the bath light but will allow the exhaust fan to continue to run for a pre-set amount of time for proper exhaust of humidity. Phone calls to H.C. Cramer/Mark Time company and they give me the wholesale houses which require a minimum order of ten (10) pieces @ $63 per, not what I want. Local electrical supply houses will not order less than 10 either. Anyone have any suggessions as to how a homeowner can buy two of these timer switches? Thanks , David

Simply replace your fan switch with one of these: Available at most home-horror stores.

David, I suggest Westside Wholesale here in LA.
They have a help desk search function where they will search large wholesalers across the country to see whether or not any are in stock, then arrange a direct ship to you.
