Default Where to get thermal cut-in switch?

Does anyone know where I can get a thermal cut-in switch for my solar can heater project? And if anyone has built one of these, do you have an idea of the optimal temp to have a fan cut in?

I've been looking around at the usual places, Home Depot, Rona, appliance repair shops, plumbing and heating shops... nobody seems to stock them!!?

I was thinking of a T-22 for my attic fan, since it's sensor seems to have developed an insensitivity to heat..
