bug that I built. And by-the-way, thanks to all
that emailed me with ideas. Very helpful.
The bottom line......the thing is VERY temperature
sensitive. The spacing of the dots varies greatly
with a difference in room temperature. Well, it is
plastic.....not real metal.....Grin!
So, looks like it is back to the drawing board.
I will say, that a plexiglass straight key or a
plexiglass side-swiper (Cootie key) is easily a
do-able project, but the plex bug has problems.
Thanks again for the helpful comments!
