'[EE]: Source for keypads??'

I need to find a source for some keypads for a small run project.  Basic requirements are:

Not a matrix pad (preferably), though I could design around one.
3X3 or possibly 4X4
sealed from dirt and moisture, should not need to be waterproof.
prefer something relatively flush to the case I will be using.
Lighted (red) for astronomy night time use
user (or mafr economically) labeled.
As inexpensive as possible.  I have about $50 per pad to work with MAX

I kinda like those pads with the silicone buttons molded into a sheet.

OR (and you suspected there might be one...) The means to make above myself in such a way as to not look too home brew.

I do have a machine shop at home so a bit of manufacturing is possible.

All electronics has two 16-pad arrays. Look quite nice, at about $15 eA.

"Timothy J. Weber"....

These are perfect EXCEPT for one thing, they are too large.  Perfect in
every other way.  Know a source for these at about half the button size?

I'm afraid not...  But you might ask the Sparkfun guys.  I have a vague
recollection they had them custom-molded, but maybe not.

Old thread, but someone might use it - nice metal keypads, waterproof,
vandalproof, not too expensive.
