Hi YuChen, nice work! Do you know from where I can find the switch for this heater? If you can tell me the part number, I can try looking it up on eBay. Thanks!

YuChen, by any chance do you know where I can get the whole covering of this Shiatsu Massage Pillow. The fabric of mine has deteriorated and torn off. I have been trying to find one using Google search but was unable to find. Can you help, Thank you
