My model was extremely dirty when purchased, so I decided to clean the dial scale with water containing a drop of dishwashing liquid. This turned out to be a bad mistake because the paint used was water soluble!

I scanned the remainder (what was left) of the scale and spent quite a few hours producing a new scale on the computer.

My next mistake was to print the image on "iron on" transparency, which ruined the original plastic.

Eventually, I used a new piece of perspex and used a "stick on transparency" printed on an ink-jet printer.

Another foolish mistake meant I had to rewind an AM if transformer. Happily, my tuner is working well in spite of its mistreatment.
