    Custom Sized Bezels

    Just wondering if anyone does custom sized bezels. I'm planning on doing a smaller desktop single seat 737 MIP and I probably need bezels that about 152mm wide.

    Anyone know who can do scaled down bezels?

    thanks!

    Re: Custom Sized Bezels

    I may be able to do them. Are we talking about a scale-down of a standard 3" instrument bezel with clear lens? If that's what you're looking for, I can do it for you. I can send you photos of the bezels I make.

    Oh, sorry. I meant the PDU display frames, these guys:



    I think normal size is ~8" wide. I probably need them scaled down to maybe 6.5".

    I just finished the CNC layouts for standard Instrument type bezels that I can scale up or down including the needles and lenses. That's what I thought you were looking for...Sorry.

    Re: Custom Sized Bezels

    Hi,

    Just stumbled across your posts Steelwings, not sure if this is more what you were talking about?

    I'm looking for round bezels for standard size gauges. I just started testing 2 monitors behind my panel and need to get a better idea of finish before finalising the captain's side monitor position and properly positioning and sizing each gauge image. Can't seem to find anyone out there that makes them. That VSI will be replaced shortly by a TCAS unit, hence the cut-out.

    Cheers
    Jon

    Re: Custom Sized Bezels

    I do. Actually I make several types: Just Bezels, Full Housings with Bezels and One-piece Face-plates. Servos can be mounted behind the one piece units. The full housings will contain an entire complex movement and the bezels can be simply attached as finishers for a video mask such as your application. (Three Photos Attached) Materials vary from plastic to phenolic. The lens is a snap-in polycarbonate disk. Is that what you were looking for?

    Re: Custom Sized Bezels

    OK thanks, looks like they may work. Plastic bezels would be what I'm looking for so they can be cut or filed to fit a particular application. I wouldn't need lenses as I am using 10mm clear acrylic in front of the monitors, though these could also be handy for a couple of dummy gauges with faceplates, rather than blanking plates. Hmmm, got me thinking...

    I'll drop you a PM when I'm back home later today.
    Cheers

    IMG_4125.JPGIMG_4128.jpgIMG_4126.JPG Here's what the bezel looks like in plastic. It can be made self-adhesive if it is just aesthetic. I also make custom blanks. The image is engraved on the inside of the blank and is finished with a lens. (white plastic painted black then engraved through) I also make the gauge faces. Any gauge, any style. Including the pointer.

    Re: Custom Sized Bezels

    I bought custom scaled bezel from Wendy for my lower EICAS. Feel the prize was scaled to Cannot remember exactly, but quality exceeded price by far.
    It fit perfect

    Steelwings,

    Any chance you can show the servo attachment for your one piece bezels? They look great!
