Today’s inspection had an ancient electrical system, with things I’ve never seen before…I’ll be posting pics L8R to gain a better understanding from you guru’s. Anyway, there were numerous switches in the home that were definitely older that were “spring toggled side- to - side” and when operated to either side, a “buzzing” could be heard… the fixtures seemed to operate o.k. I’m assuming they are meant to do this since they all did it. Can someone hopefully enlighten me, without a pic ?? I’ll try & get some up tomorrow, but I was kinda hopin someone would possibly know somethin about these switches without seein one, maybe?? hopefully???.. Thanks.

Sounds already like you’re dealing with an old GE RR-7 low voltage switching system, with the R-232 switches.
