    Your shop. Your rules.

    Given they are soft "whitemetal" disks on the 79 year old 1942 "brass round dial", just as they are on the 77 year old 1944 "white-metal round-dial"?

    Some of the Bronze rounds here were bought specifically to make NEW ones.

    So the 156 years worth of - among other acquired patina - "getting it right" will not be so fugly.

    My shop. Bronze rules.

    I even have a salvaged brass dial from a part-out to replace the 1944's ZAMAK dial.
