    Good stuff. Just because I started, here are the rest of the measurements off mine (should anyone else need it).

    I went ahead and made one from James specs. Is this what they are supposed to look like installed? The pin holder sits up from the rest if the assembly. PICT0013.JPG PICT0012.JPG PICT0011.JPG

    The gap, I believe, should be around .04".

    Cool! I`ll wait on the pin from another board member because the one I made isn`t probably as corrosion resistant as an original.

    In theory it shouldn't ever see water, making corrosion resistance moot, however I agree if you have the real deal coming, why not use it! What would it take to get one you spun on your lathe to play with?

    In theory it shouldn't get wet but you never know so you should use SS. I would be more concerned about how hard it is. The originals are hardened which keeps them from bending. Not sure what the material you used was but nails tend to be too soft and will bend too easily.
    There should be some space between the pin support and the nozzle at rest. 0.040 is right for a RAM, I would assume it's OK for a DA. What you don't want is space between the pin pad and the nozzle face when the pad is pressed in. If you do, that means the HP seat is bottoming out inside the nozzle and could cause the pin to bend.

    The material I made it out of was a screw thread burr for mounting a rubber polishing point. Not going to bend. Used in my dental lab. (retired) I figured a nail would be way to soft. Thanks everyone for the input and the offers. I love this place!!
