I've had good luck with  Apple Lisa's, Processor Technology Sol-20s,
Dynalogic Hyperions and a TRS-80 model II keyboard.  I make my own with
weather stripping (sticky on one side), two sided tape and silver gift
wrapping (mylar).  I would re-use the original plastic disk (after cleaning
them up) or I cut out overhead projector transparancies if I had to.  It is
a chore but I made hundreds once and am almost out now.

Here's a pic:
