Grateful thanks to Jerry who generated these at my request to solve the problem of replacing a much degraded / distorted original.

Another couple of dials to add to the ever growing list..

Please note: When printing from these PDF files make sure you select 'Actual Size' and not the default of 'Fit' or they will be the wrong size!

As the Milde 541 is printed on the glass I have created one that can be placed on the backplate by first removing the tuning indicator and the band indicator.

Not a dial, but the paper label affixed to the chassis of the Pilot Major Maestro (Model T16) from c. 1947, the version with a live chassis but with a stepdown filament transformer.

With all the postwar shortages, they seem to have been a bit approximate with the label applied; this one clearly states it's for the multi-voltage version, but it was applied to a 240V~ only chassis.

I had a dial scan of a KB FB10 'Toaster' in which - due to the thickness of the glass when scanning - shadows were cast in the areas of the dial which should be transparent, such as where the wavelengths are marked, and the little oblong 'windows' adjacent to the station names. Those shortcomings will be noticeable when viewing the original scan, Pic 1 below, and were also apparent on a waterslide transfer.

I've found some time to clean up the scan by clearing all the transparent areas, and have recreated the wavelength markings in the windows, which had been a bit indistinct. A waterslide transfer applied to the rear of the dial glass needs to have the image reversed and must of course be printed on transparent decal paper so that the 'window' areas are transparent.

Pic 1: The original scan.

Pic 2: The cleaned up scan.

Hope that might be useful to someone.
