If you want one, send me a PM with your mailing address and I'll mail one (or more) out to you. Once Goldie on is available for JPG, that will be included to. Make sure to tell me Goldie or Greenie.
WE HAVE LABELS!!!! :D Thanks again all. Printed a sheet full (20) on a color laser printer using clear Avery label stock #5663. Although Avery advertises these labels as "clear", they are actually a tad frosted. I'll post photo tonight with sticker on my headstock. I'll do a sheet full of the Goldie label that Tom created also.

Remember, if you want one, PM your address to me.

Mike, if I might suggest something... Laser toner may/can eventually flake or rub off the labels if unprotected. When I make labels like this, I have a roll of Scotch 2" wide clear packing tape that I will cover the printed label with, basically laminating it, and protecting the print. Makes it a lot more durable.

Yours must have been the one they used to illustrate the user manual!:D

Mine had factory applied label.:)

Clear Laquer the bench tubes???

Post by mickyd »

The maintenance section of the owners manual for the Greenie says the bench tubes were corrosion proofed with a clear lacquer. Mine obviously wore off.

Any opinions / facts as to doing this? I know that the clear lacquer that I sprayed inside of all my headstock parts came out real nice and to me, it would make sense to do the bench tubes also to eliminate having to wax them (not that it's a big deal). What say you??

Seeing as how you have been a stickler for historical accuracy(except the polishing) I would think you would want to apply a finish as close to the original as you can get!:cool:

P.S. I would still wax them(after lacquer has plenty of time to dry/cure).

Here is a picture of the labels on my Mark V (1962 model as far as I can tell).
[ATTACH]3776[/ATTACH]

With all of the discussions about original factory caution labels, now I am wondering when and how many machines had the metal riveted caution plate to the right of the toggle switch. Note: The two grey stick on labels on the belt guard were added just because that is what I got when I ordered labels not knowing what I was getting.

Also, does anyone know what the symbol "SA or CSA" to the right of the word "Mark V" is referring to?? Thanks, John McCrossen

Judasprey1982; Yes, the paint on this one is original and in pretty good shape. Only a few minor scratches and dings. It is still too nice to repaint. John

Looks like mine(except the paint is in MUCH better condition than mine). The CSA is the canadian equivalent to UL.

DUSTY: Didja notice it says "MARK 5"?
