It might, but you're not going to get 5A out of a 0.5A transformer :-/
0.5V lower might work, but ideally though you'd power with a 5V
transformer.  Surely they shouldn't be too hard to find!?

*peeks at Jaycar web site* Hmm, 5V seems surprisingly uncommon.
Jaycar have a 5A, 5V regulated supply for a mere $90 - eek!  It'd
almost be cheaper to buy a new switch for that price :-(  The others
the stock seem to be lower current (e.g. 2.5A or less) or other
