Legs for base radio.

I will be receiving a couple of mobile radios to use in the base, & they will be sitting on Astrons. I need to find the little rubber feet to keep the radios 1/2" above the ps. I tried the "Shack" & they don't have any. I also tried Lowe's, & all they had were 1/8" round rubber feet for furniture legs to keep from scratching a wooden floor. Any Ideas here? GARY N4KVE

Take a look at the good old Grainger catalog.

Stack a couple of the stick on ones. Not ideal, but it'll work. Also, I've found that our local Ace hardware has a pretty nice selection of hardware, much, much better than Lowes or Home Depot. Might be worth a trip there to go through their stock. I usually find what I'm looking for there.
