*I've not worked on a RX-01 before, but I've been keeping my eye out for 
suitable felt button replacements.   The only thing I've seen so far as 
these felt pellets used in pellet guns... they come in .177 - .22 inch 
sizes.     If you've lost the carrier as well, you've got a slightly 
more difficult problem.
