Hi again,

You guys were so helpful last time I've got 2 new questions! : ) Hopefully someone can assist again.

What's the optimal dimensions for the rectangular hole to fit costar stabilizers?
Does the actual stabilizer peg line up dead center of the stabilizer hole once everything is assembled?

Just so it's clear. What I mean by "stabilizer hole" is the hole in the steel plate which accepts the black lower piece of the costar stabilizer.

It is not straightforward. They holes should be somewhat offset to the centre of the switch, relative to the orientation of the switch.

I could draw you a diagram in QCad...

Oh! I was worried that might be the case. I'd appreciate it, or even a rough diagram as long as it shows exact measurements.

I appreciate as much accuracy as you can provide. : ) Will save me a good chunk of time and money for sure if they're dead on.

Nice! That's above and beyond man. : ) Thank you.

Hopefully I can find a nice place to do my CNC work on the plate and this all works out. Nearly done designing my custom! :D Yay.
