I picked up a EQ-3 mount for an outreach program, but the plastic button that locks the DEC axis was missing. I made several replacements from different plastics, but they don't have enough grab. Has anyone found a suitable replacement for these button or does anyone know of a source of manufactured replacements? Thanks in advance.
