Default Re: Recreating meter scales.

OK, here is the other scale. This is what just editing it gets you without spending too long at it.

The trouble is you can go on for ever refining it. We used to do this kind of thing commercially several decades ago!

Hi Folks, there was a program called "Meter" by James Tonnes, dates back to about 2005 and allowed creation of all sorts of scales, arcs, sizes and fonts.
It was also simple to use.

See if there is still a copy about anywhere

The attached spreadsheet contains links to software that may be of use in our hobby. Among then are a few for meter/knob scales.

That's the one. The free basic version seems to have all that is required.
