I am after Jaw 4 for the Futura Pro which is a metal bar.

I have checked our suppliers here in Aus and US and no stock.

Just wondering if someone has one they can measure? I will machine one up while I wait for our suppliers to get them in stock.

The Futura will centre automatically if the spacers used are the same dimension on both sides of the key. This is the case for Planes 1, 2 and 3.

When using the Jaw 4 plane the Futura calculates the centre based on a 6mm offset on plane 2. Without the offset on Jaw 4 the text needs to be off centre to appear centre or the engraver may even hit the Jaw.

We do a lot of keys that require Jaw 4 and the wires I were using were fiddly. The Jaw 4 spacer has already saved me a  lot of time.
