Supplier Nameplate recreation for a bascule from +/- 1900 (Gebroeders Polak)

Recommended Posts


Hallo I am trying to restore a very old bascule (wooden scale)
It is almost finished but I'm missing the Supplier Nameplate
I found a webpage (in dutch) with the tag
The picture is not the best but I want to match the font as close as possible
The G is a close match with the Swis721
But the r in "werktuigen" is not correct.
Also the E in "VLISSINGEN" has an extended lower bar (It looks custom made?)
When I have the correct font then my next task is to try lasering/milling it out of a plate of brass or copper.
Thank you in advance.
