What about using the plastic sheets that engravers use to make name plates and door signs. I am not sure what thickness that material is available in but it would make the lettering show up quite well. If the top plate were made large enough to allow 1/4" or so around the edges you could make a wood base and attach the top plate to complete the index. Just a thought ....

Most of that material would blow the price point I was originally targeting

I made one out of scrap wood and a piece of scrap Corian after I'd been making pens for about a year or so. It sure makes life easier. I've added a place to store the bushings with a list of the kits for each bushing and a pull-out slide where I mounted a three ring binder to hold plastic sleeves with the instructions for each kit.

And it didn't get broken because you didn't have to ship it FedEx

It's not "Having what you want" is "Wanting what you have".

Wayne, Too True. I ship FedEx quite a bit and even when I have something packed very well, with bubble wrap and padding etc, they still manage to break stuff. I know how cargo is handled, as I did that for a while when I worked for Delta. That said, I pack stuff accordingly and yet...

Thanks for the kind words and I hope that all is going well for you in the frozen north country.

Have you considered having them cut in metal on a laser and simply mount on board?
