I had a similar problem when I designed a Drake 7 line look alike enclosure that allowed for a RX only antenna switch and forthcoming 6M transverter for my TR-7. I used original Drake 7 line pushbuttons and they are stiff. I eventually added a piece of 3/8” steel plate inside the enclosure and it just barely solved the issue!

I did work on the JackAl using a 5" touch screen and it works well, but used a Teensy 3.6 for the processor. The display I'm using now is a 2.8" TFT display (see:QCX CAT Demo) which supports a touch screen, and I just got
in a boatload of 3.5" touch screen displays that I may implement that later on. One of the problems I had was that the BITX family and the QCX don't have enough mass to making using a touch screen possible without holding the case with the other hand, even with rubber feet on it. Has that been a problem for you? If not, how did you fix it? I think making a sloping faceplate might work.
