This is a HOWTO on making dials. The dials I've produced with these methods are okay, but not spectacular. Advice on how to improve the methods are welcome, but please test your proposed improvements first.
In the first instance, this will be published in installments. The first installment will be a section on making the dial blank. The second will be on making the stencil for printing. The third will be using the stencil to print on the dial blank.
