    Question b737 fire handle size ?

    if anyone has the fire panel of b737 would you mind posting the size of the handles?
    Width x Length x Height of the actual handle only so lets call it the box,
    I would like to make my own as the ones that are available for sale are just priced astronomically high so i decided I'd try and play with some raisin and make my own, all though I'd would like them to be as close to the actual size of the true thing as possible I will gladly buy the panel itself but the handles.. well even though they are actual switches ... c'mon 300 EUROS !!!

    The idea is to make a black cast with LEDS inside the mold, then once somewhat cured slap a "sticker" with corresponding number/lettering and pure thin clear layer .. sound simple enough ... well maybe LOL

    but anyways I would appreciate if someone can measure the size of the handle and share the info, in millimeters is fine more accurate then inches IMO

    Thanks
    Andy
