Wiper switch question

Is there something mystical about WS wiper switches that I should know? I have one that says 'Wiper' on it - but would prefer to use just a simple toggle switch hidden under my dash for my single speed, little Pacific Western wiper that I'm hanging with a removable bracket on my windshield frame. Ron Francis and American Autowire seem to list many - but why........?

If it is anything like a marine wiper, you can use a toggle switch w/o issue. some marine units use use a switch on the back of the motor, but most use a toggle switch on the dash.. I know many of the hotrod units are chromed out versions that include a longer wiper arm

Matt - this is not that marine chunk that most folks seem to want to use. I have used them - but they are, IMO, clunky looking. I finally, after a few obscenities, found my instructions exacly where they should have been in my build book - and answered my own question - yes, a single toggle switch will work along with a 1 amp fuse in-line.
