New EC10 Mk1 dial scale artwork in Restoration folder

March 20, 2020 By: chris Category: News

Richard G8MWQ has been restoring a recently purchased EC10 Mk 1 which was in a pretty poor state. The first thing he noticed was the frequency scale was badly damaged. There were sufficient markings left to allow him to redraw the scale using a software package called Eagle CAD. The redrawn scale was mirror printed onto a piece of Inkjet Printable A4 Clear/Transparent Vinyl Glossy Self Adhesive Sticker from Amazon, this was then attached to the rear of the original glass (after cleaning off the remaining silk screen print), Richard attached the PDFs to a recent EddystoneUserGroup forum e mail so I have added them to the restoration section of the website. Richard say please make sure that when printed the horizontal scales are 250mm length. He also say that note, the writing is black which shows up remarkably well against the grey background, as CMYK printers cannot print white this was considered suitable. – Chris G0EYO
