    I have seen in a few photos that some of the adjustable combs use a plastic ring/washer to adjust the height of the cheek piece. This system appears it will work better than the set factory screws my BT-100 uses.

    Can the plastic washer be used for my BT-100 and where may I find them?

    You can get plastic washers of various sizes at hardware stores that will work just fine. As to if it will work on your BT, im not sure.---Matt

    My True Value hardware has Nylon washers in the plumbing department and they do work.

    common zinc washed steel washers work just as good and are cheaper.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I should have thought about the nylon washers, that only makes sense.

    Ace Hardware has them in two colors and about 20 sizes. At $.15 a pop you can prolly afford the nylon. I splurged and got a bunch the right size and dif thicknesses for Jack West posts in both colors. Seems like I got outta there for less than a couple bucks still. I think I'm gonna mix the b/w 1/16"ers for that custom whiteline spacer look hahahaha

    Charlie you mentioned that Ace has these washers in different thicknesses. I found nylon washers that fit my gun, but they were only one color (which is fine), but only one thickness, 1/8". Can you clarify where in the store you found these?

    Dennis Devault @ devault industries sells some. Color coded for size and they fit like a glove. That way you can just put on of the appropriate size under the comb and presto. Never have to worry about counting washers, plus they look nice.

    Plain old stainless steel flat washers, or rubber washers from the hardware store.
