you could try the Free Galva made by F5BU https://www.f5bu.fr/galva-download/ to recreate them. they seem pretty simple scales
Another commercial application is Abacom FrontDesigner 3.0 which has meter scale option.

I wonder if it will end up like the famous early usenet post: "What time is it?"

That post was made to give people A Big Hint not to waste other people's time with questions they could have easily answered themselves.

That usenet mob was sufficiently intelligent and self-aware that it did quieten down the chatter. Since then we've had Eternal September :(

Wasn't THE (most) famous early USENET post, "i aM eLiTe!!! gIvE mE wArEz D00dZ!!!" ???

BTW, what time is it?

Anyway... FWIW... I kinda like...

09:46 And that question was from the early 80s[1] and I think (but am not sure) it predated leet speak

More importantly, I wonder if it will be ever possible for p.larner to learn to politely consider our time by using gurgle. Evidence is against it.

[1] when email and usenet addresses had to specify each and every mailserver between source and destination, e.g. to get to janet on machine moria, you might have specified eek!foo!bar!swim!moria!janet and hoped that swim could connect to moria :(

in reference to the trolls comment on here,galva is almost impossible to use+ i made the scales originaly using tonne meter sw,it was a pain in the a$$ hence my post,do you get a kick out of making unwanted snide comments,or just like making derogatory comments that have no place on here??.

got a 2100b in the shed, I think both have cracked meter covers.  Are they the same?

Edit: looked like it from online pics.  brought amp in, pulled scales out.  going to go scan them

No problem!  I don't do much restoration work, but I completely understand wanting it looking original and not having some generic scale in there.

well i found galve sw impossible to master and the tonne meter sw was a pig to use as some versions cant do log scales,thought a scan of the originals was the way to go,cheers+73.
