Now who do I believe? My wife says size is no indication of performance.<P>Seriously, thanks, Chuck. I downloaded the info.<P>------------------<BR>Mike<BR>From the homestead on the banks of the Big River<P>"Daddy told me, 'Son, you're gonna drive me to drinkin' if you don't stop drivin' that hot rod Lincoln.'"

Chuck:<BR>Thanks, but could you post the pictures in 1:1 scale (100% actual size)? That would be really helpful. BOB<P>------------------<BR>

Thanks for the helpful reference Chuck. By the way, I've been reading through the "Trouble Shooting Techniques" service bulletin/handbook on your website. This is a great resource! It goes well with the "Elements of Radio Servicing" material being discussed on the other forum. Thanks again!<P>------------------<BR>Gary

Simply adjust the size of the 'ruler' to get it to print out 1:1<BR>Gary<P>------------------<BR>

Gary:<BR>Thanks, but is easier "said than done". I don't pretend to be a computer expert. How do I re size Chuck's images to actual size?<BR>BOB<P>------------------<BR>

Bob, I think the problem lies with the fact that every monitor size will produce a different size image regardless of how Chuck posts it. <P>One thing you can do is "right click" on the target image on Chuck's post and then click on "Save Picture As ..." and send the .jpg image to wherever you want on your hard drive. Then you can pull up a program like Microsoft Paint, load that image and make it bigger or smaller and print to check the results against a ruler.<P>Dean<P><BR>------------------<BR>

Most graphics programs have a ruler guide on screen. Use that to properly size.

Here you go--just print them out and they should be the right size. I checked them and they're pretty close. Make sure when you print them out that you print to 100% scale--not fit to page.

This is great. Is it available online somewhere? Are there other gems there too?

Thanks

This is from a 1936 Radio parts catalog that I have. I scanned it recently and submitted it to David at American Radio History. I don't see it up on the page yet. Here's the cover of the magazine, plus Centralab resistor sizes.
