After a disapointing start with blanks that were just not right for the Yugos, Cold Steel Solutions has a re-dimensioned blank. I got some and can verify that they are the right height. For those who like to do the work themselves, this blank has the best potential. It is 1.5 thickness and very heavy. The bends are correct and the width is such that no milling to narrow the trunion will be necessary. If there are any issues which come up during the build, I will update this, At the moment, the blanks seem to be a fine product and worth considering for your build. I am very pleased with mine.
