What kind of keypad are you after?

I'm very lucky in that I live close to a surplus store that always has

If you're able to fabricate your own PCB, here's something interesting

And you checked Digikey, right? Use the product selector here -- they
have something like 114 different keypads they sell:

Good luck.
