Im not sure how you're going to get the measurements off a picture, just measure the opening on the pin where the glass would go and have it made up.

Is it cracked, or broken with missing pieces?  You could scan it and do some repair work in Photoshop if it's cracked.  If it's missing pieces, you can use this image as a reference.

Romeobt if you ever return, sorry this thread turned into an argument instead of what you needed, this is normally a very helpfull forum.

Stingray, no problem then, i heard the word glass and as a glass man i didnt even think about the art aspect and it seemed like you were taking a shot at me with that comment.

Sometimes comming from the EE section i tend to have a different mindset and i should leave that mindset at the door, i think i just talked myself into agreeing with the "move the EE section people"  :-\
