I didn't find his products, but I found these:
The CP-2 line seems to have the right dimensions for DEC FLIP CHIP
modules (2.43" wide, ~2" rivet hole spacing) and they have them in
natural nylon, which might be dyable, white, and black.
They are stocked by Digikey and Mouser for under $1 each.

We are exploring a small-scale injection mold machine at our local
hackerspace. I want to try some DEC switch handles but as an earlier
experiment, FLIP CHIP handles will be a simpler die to make.
