Default 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?

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.

Mick.

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.
