K5 screen dimensions?

I am looking for a drawing with exact dimensions for the K5/K7 screen to hand it and my EES screen to the laser cutting service of my choice.

Does anyone have one or knows, where to find it?

I am also thinking of including a rule of thirds grid while I am at it. Could that just be cut into the surface?

Cheers,
Torge

If you want a grid, I would stick to the electronic one.

The screen itself is 60x45mm, and that's excluding the edges (add 3mm to both dimensions for the edges).

Adam, he's asking about the focus screen...

I'll try to measure mine this week-end, back at home...

In imperial, don't have a metric caliper.

Width 1.020"
Height .70"
Tab .150 at base tapered to .130 Height of screen + tab is .77

Tab .15 to .30 from corner to base. Not precise. I'm not certain how close this needs to be for the screen to work. Focussingscreens has images showing which side the tab is on.

This is from an FSB screen from focussingscreens.com for a K-5. I'd suggest getting confirmation before cutting

Perhaps you can just send your existing screen with the new one and let the shop do the measuring.
