NOM-12 data plate

Post by damar2yxr » Thu Sep 06, 2018 6:09 am

In Lloyd White’s vol. 2 Mark Tombleson wrote that the NOM-12 had a data tag mounted on the dash.

Are these available at all? Has Robert DeReuter at dataplates4u been approached?
Yeah, yeah I know I could ask him but if this is all old hat then I don’t want to repeat it....

I don't think anyone has done these like they should be, with the boarder and letters higher than the background.

The material is Texolite #8... It is like phenolic resin circuit board material… basically resin coated cloth material.

John Rogers silk screened my repro I use on the MZ-1, I sent him the material. I keep my original in the safe.

Contact Robert, see what he says as I don't know if he wants to work with that kind of material.

Is that photo of your data plate?

No. That was from Lloyd’s book.
