Default Ekco PB179 Dial

Hi folks,

Not sure if this is the right place but attached is a picture of the dial for the Ekco PB179, I seemed to remember that another member was looking for something like this. Hope it helps.

Re Marconi CR300 dial. Thanks for dial printout Lawrence.

This may be of help to someone not having a colour printer, only black. I printed the dial on Southworth parchment paper gold which I found to be the same colour as my dial. Went over the intermediate lines with a black pen then three fine coats of varnish. Job done, impossible to tell the difference. Now going to have a lay down just recorded both drives?

Thanks again, Derek.

I've had a go at touching it up and it has come out well, I think (but, of course, I'm prejudiced!)

I've assumed that the original was black to the edges and that the paint has come off where it was fixed and will be invisible anyway.

Personally, I think it would look better with the text at the bottom and the Volume and Tuning legends removed but other might disagree.

The problem is not only identifying the exact font used (and hoping it is widely available) but also that the scan is twisted. I've improved on the original but can only adjust it in 1 degree intervals so you will notice it now tilts the other way (but not so much!)

Unless someone can suggest a way of producing text with a matching tilt, I think it would look terrible, although it might be possible to carefully adjust the position of each character to match the tilt!

I've previewed this picture and it looks OK but I do have the original which is a much bigger file that I could insert in a pdf if anybody is interested.

Some additional tweaks (and thanks for your original file, Terry )

(Mods, any chance of having my post #50 deleted being as it's superfluous now? - thanks)
