Replacement for Rubber Bumper on WE Switchhook?

I have a WE 50AL that is missing the little rubber bumper on the switchhook that presses against the switch springs.  Does anybody have any suggestions for a replacement?  I could probably kludge something together from wood and epoxy.


The little piece is mushroom shaped and friction fits into a little hole in the switchhook. Find a little wood dowel to fit in the hole, and cut it off so some of it sticks out to push against the switch leaves.


I made a little dam out of tape and cast in place a square replacement from epoxy.  If it doesn't hold up, I'll try using a piece of wood.
