                    (Change dates of manufacture) (Tnx John Elwood: WW7P)

25         238      VIBROPLEX CHAMPION:
                    (NOTE:  This photo actually shows a Vibroplex
                    Zephyr.  The Zephyr has a shorting switch
                    whereas the Champion does not.)
        
33                  McELROY GENERIC LABEL:
                    This label may be copied onto aluminum
                    and used to make a reproduction label 
                    The vertical dimension is the correct size.
                    BUT: You must use graphics software to expand
                    the horizontal dimension to 1.75-inches.

Another solution:   You may download and print the corectly sized

                    from my internet museum: http://w1tp.com
