Paper Dials
« on: September 25, 2014, 05:59:33 PM »
Does anyone know if there is a supplier of paper dials for G3?  I need to turn a pressure gauge so, if there is someone out there, I can machine to suit what's available.

I assume (on basis that your model is battery powered) that you merely require a transfer to apply to a turned or cast dummy gauge face?

If so, the cheap and easy way (and it will enable you to produce an exact replica of the markings required) is to photograph the original, edit the photo down to the correct size, then print onto decal paper.

A lot easier than it might sound and, if you don't have the software, send me the photo and I will do it for you!

My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.
