K-x Hot mirror filter dimensions?

I've looked all over the place(including here) and have found no useful information about the dimensions of the hot filter.
Also, where could I get decent quality glass cut to the dimensions of the hot filter? I'd rather not take apart the camera to get to the filter just to measure it, only for it to sit for who know how long until I get the clear glass.(although I could just put it back together). I don't know how much just the glass piece would cost either. I read somewhere that a guy used microscope slides and cut them, but I'll also need the width correct for focusing purposes.
I know there are places, like spencer's up in Utah, that offer to do Full-Spectrum Conversions,but that's $300 plus the shipping.

Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated.
