Has a source for tube location label reproductions been found?

I do not believe so. What radio do you need the label for? Someone may be able to make one from a scan from their radio. If not, you can try looking at pictures of your model online. As a last resort, you may be able to make a label in photoshop or from the radio schematic itself.

There was a guy on eBay doing very photorealistic reproduction labels for Philco cabinets. I don't think they were cheap, but they were pretty good. I think he did repro patent labels as well - all the labels they originally had. If he's still doing them a quick search should locate him.

Cheers

Thanks. This is for a wards airline 62-225. The original label was swabbed in stain during production. Just trying to keep it looking original.

Then make sure you swab the new one in stain too :lol:

Can you make out the detail that was on it? It should be easy enough to reproduce unless it was done photo-style like some Philco ones I've seen.

Cheers

Steve
