Default Wavemeter chart--- recycle or not?

It is glued to a very attractive sheet of Tufnol that would make a very good drop in chassis for the ABS box I have for these 6 boards plus power supply.

Is anyone missing one for a set they own before I cut it up?

The size I need is 175mm X 225mm to fit inside the fixings. The 225 dimension is the more critical one as you can see from the photos.

All suggestions are welcome.

Lovely thing, the very least you could do is to scan it and put it on the internet, you can place quite large PDF's here. At least it will (with a bit of searching) be available to someone who may need it.

It appears to have been made up to go with an individual instrument as there is a serial number shown on it. There are identical looking charts on both sides.
It would be interesting to know more about it.

Since it appears to be specific to a particular serial number unit which presumably no longer exists, it wouldn't be accurate for another unit so its loss would not be terrible.

Although it appears to be instrument specific I would still scan and post it if possible. It could still be used as a template and adjusted to suit another one. It would also be worth including some dimensions.

It's also rather terse, compared to the book that goes with a BC221. Only one page to scan.

I will see what I can do with the scanning. The chart on the other side is not in such good condition though. I pulled it from a skip when I was salvaging some scopes and an AC bridge. I sold the scopes some years ago and have restored the bridge and am looking for cap and inductor decade boxes to expand it from resistance only to a full bridge.
I originally salvaged the chart for the Tufnol anyway.
