A cast from it, cut it in half and photographed edge on would be perfect. Or use one of those contour pin-arrays you can get for matching mouldings. Even a 45 degree angled photo of each side and a max depth measurement would be a help...Crispin
Quote from: cyberleader1991 board=general thread=1118043098 post=1126303435May I ask tough, what is the distance between the very edge of the roundel and where the contour begins? There appears to be a discrepancy between the drawing and the pic...?What vintage is that roundel? And what should one make the former out of - clay?

Quote from: meantimebob board=discussion thread=1118043098 post=1206582989great reference there. 8-)I've always wondered how they made the former for the roundels. Was it routered out of wood? Anyone know?
Quote from: purpleblancmange board=discussion thread=1118043098 post=1206605107Looking at the mould, your assumption would be correct, I guess. There is a very faint dowel mark right in the centre which suggests that it was spun - and I've always assumed it was either plaster or wet clay as the full roundel does appear to have a few "wobbles" on it in a few places.
Quote from: teletran on Aug 07, 2009, 09:02 amI just did some calculations for the hatstand based on the surrounding roundels and it came out as 7 ft. 3 3/4" does that sound right?If anyone is interested the season 16 walls come out as being about 9 ft. -3/4" tall with 4.5x 19.5" roundels separated by 4 1/4" and raised 2 1/2" from the floor, height extenders not included.This is very quick so double check but I thought I'd share what I had.
