Default Wherer can I get a youth size platen for my Tex Jet printer?

Does anyone know where I can get a youth size platen for my Tex Jet 4260? This is basically the same as the G2 and attaches in the same manner. The sales people at Melco are less than helpfull and want to try and sell me a new printer, just to get a youth size platen. Thanks

I thought about fabricating one, or having someone fabricate it for me. I just thought if I could find a used one, that would be easier. What do you mean Dibond?

Did you make a complete platen or something that attaches to the larger platen? I'd like to see how you did it. If you pm me, I'll give you my email so you can send me a couple picts.
