    If I recall correctly, the studs are the same size as a normal keyboard key (and the originals might be made from keyboard keys).

    Thanks RF, I managed to score some keys off an old keyboard.. But It doesnt seem right.. the sides have to much of a sloped angle.. plus the bottom is uneven.. For wrist angle purposes when typing i guess.

    I have a block of resin lying around from a previous recast of a m38 scope.. So i guess I could use that.. So I really can't use the keyboard keys that I have as a reference..

    Anyone willing to take measurements of their studs? L x W x H?

    Thanks!

    I was thinking the same thing about the angle of the keys...u need to find the perfectly square keys,on a non sloped keyboard or adding machine

    Could you guys give me measurements of your studs? If it's not too much to ask :-) I'll just mold them out of resin.

    If they turn out good, I'd be interested in 2 studs for my cod->butt connection.

    That is.. if you think of doing more than just for yourself.
