Default Re: Avo 36 range restoration

Aitor,

Just noticed a mistake in my previous Post.
Just in case you didn't spot it.

It should have said:

"To avoid delay in despatch. it is requested that re -
mittances accompany all orders for fuses and cells."

So "requested", and NOT as I incorrectly typed last time "request"

I also note, that AVO seem to have spelled "despatch" incorrectly!
The correct spelling is "dispatch" however, on my Label, AVO definately
didn't use an i.
The Printing was not of the same Quality as the Meter.
The printing was originally of Poor Quality and the Label appears to have
been Hand Cut to size with Scissors.

Thanks, i corrected that!!

I finished it and printed in a self-adhesive paper, i cutted it badly due to the original is like that, also i glued it on the reverse of the battery cover in the same way as original, i mean no perfect horizontal. That is only for test, i must polish a little bit the battery cover. Originally is only painted by the outside.

The type of the letter is quite the same, the size is a little bit smaller, but i think it is not such important. Perhaps the capital letters like "FUSE" should be little bit bigger, but for me is OK. The bad speeling on "despatch" was respected as the lack of capitals letters after a full stop. I printed it on red because in my Avo 34 ranges there was half label left of this colour.

The original size is

3,2 Cm x 6 Cm

Attached there is the JPG file if anybody is interested.

Special attention was taken on the position of the letters respect the letters immediately over, also on the spaces between them, etc.

I hope it is useful for the Avo collectors community!!!

Not incorrect, both 'Dispatch' and 'Despatch' are acceptable spellings. However, Despatch was the more common spelling used in the early/mid 1900's

Hi Andy,

Yes, just looked it up and you are absolutely correct!

Both spellings are apparently acceptable English and
as you say, despatch was more common in the Past.

I should have questioned the Microsoft Spell Check to start with,
knowing it doesn't like British English much, preferring instead some
strange dialect called American English, what ever that is!

It's certainly a label Aitor!! I'm not a fan of making reproduction of parts. I have just acquired a 1895 Evershed and Vignoles 120V generator and the label in not great, but I certainly don't want to replace it. I think it loses its authenticity. Just my opinion though..... You have done a decent job with it.

It is for the 36 range Avo, that the whole battery cover was missing, until I found an original one.

I think same way as you. On my 34 range, I will conserve part of the original label that survived
