I need someone to make a dial.
 
I need a dial for the FM radio I re constructed to fit into a Tesla case. If I draw what it will look like dimensions etc, is there someone who can make a professional job of it. It will be basic just numbers, Thanks, Mick.

What kind of material did you have in mind?
Glass, polycarbonate (transparent) or some opaque material?
Colours?
Apertures?

I was thinking black lettering on a gold background . or transparent adhesive so I can stick it to a gold paper , Mick.

Thanks.

Mike, Ben Dickman is good for the special keepers, I have had a few dials from him they are excellent. I was thinking of something cheap and cheerful for this project.

Have you got a sketch of what you'd like? Just a labelled pencil back-of-the-envelope would be fine, with some idea of dimensions. I could certainly have a go based on what you've said.

I made this one - see pics using polished brass plate and Letraset. Letraset though is getting very hard to find and it's not cheap anymore.

If that looks OK send me a PM.

Andy.
