Replacement keyboard switch post or stem for Apple IIe.

This part replaces the stem in an SMK "long stem" keyswitch, Apple part #s 705-0081, 705-0084, and 705-0082. See the images for more details, or archived Apple documentation here:


Also available in sets of 12:

[updated August 2015] The stem now has a slight bulge in the plus-shaped cross-section to better acommodate variation in the size of the final print. Some pieces were too loose, and the keycap would come off too easily.

Cool. Funny thing is, my stem is in tact on my Apple II. Is there any way you could make a 3D-printable key that fits an Apple II's key stem?
