kit - 1/8" plate

  • hi all. for those building a kit and considering a 1/8" thick faceplate (instead of 1/4")...
    previously i posted about using an 1/8" aluminum plate and using nuts as spacers.
    I've changed my mind... I think it's best to avoid single point spacers (like nuts, or washers) because the keypads tend to stick.

    I removed my spacers and it's working much better. so if you decide to get a 1/8" plate, I recommend using no spacers...
    and if the keys stick (hasn't happened to me yet) then apply a little baby powder as tehn has suggested.

    or use some sort of spacer that spans the length of the keys.
