    Anything with a nicely squared edge only seems to fit panels 2-3mm and upwards, that^ is about as close as you can get really- it's quite thin so should lay flatter when fixed in place, in theory..

    Edit: alternatively:

    Shame you can't order from the states, McMaster-carr have exactly what you want:

    Most packages I receive from the States arrive within a week, even from the western states.
