Default Re: Bush DAC90A, Write-off to Worker in no easy steps.

Thank you all again for your kind words, meanwhile, I've been recreating another label for these sets, a nice touch to complete the restoration.

A colleague at work had also acquired a DAC90A which had seemingly, a factory fitted label with it. It was in very poor condition (label & radio), the label being just about legible.

Needless to say, attached, a photo of said new label creation, & a PDF for printing onto A4. The string & hole reinforcements were 'rescued' from a used/modern/scrap label.

I used slightly thicker/darker paper from Hobbycraft (just a happy customer) & printed. You'll end up with eight labels, the easiest way to make the holes, once the labels were trimmed to size, I removed the base of my hole-punch & aligned the label crosshair with the hole, in the base of the hole-punch.

Not sure if these labels were originally glued inside the set, or tied to the back.

Hopefully these, along with the calibration labels above, prove useful in other success stories.

Slowly turning the 'to-do', into 'ta-dah'
