Metric Push/pull pot?

I'm having a ver very hard time finding one. I'm trying to fit one to my RG520QS, which needs a 24mm shaft. I don't want to have to drill, but I don't think I can find one that fits anywhere! Cold somebody please enlighten me here?
What I aim to do with it is to make it a toggle for a blower switch. A blower switch bypasses all controls and gives you only a full-on bridge PU sound.

This is the only thing that might be remotely possible, would this guy here have what I need?

If anybody has had luck finding metric Push/pull DPDT pots anywhere, I would love to have your advice!

Re: Metric Push/pull pot?

Scratch that last link, how about this?

or would this one fit without modification?

EDIT: some greatly prefer the quality of StewMac to GFS, would this work?

Re: Metric Push/pull pot?

Another thing, I came across this @ Ibanezrules.

JS - Smooth Shaft - 3VR1J500AS

It has a smooth shaft, and find it annoying to have to deal with the set-screw knobs, but if this will drop in without having to drill, I'll go for it. Also, anybody know if this is a vol or tone pot? Where do most folks put push pull pots anyway? vol or tone?

I also came across a "push-push" at warmoth It sounded kinda cool, but I think it wouldn't fit w/o drilling. Are these worth it? They are CTS.
