    Yet again this site has proved its worth !
    . I took the hard plastic lids from some aerosol paint cans, cut a couple of slots to fit over the pointers and tail pieces of the gauges and they simply slid on with a light push and feel as if they will stay put until deliberately lifted off. The soft lids which I tried first did not want to stay on very well.
    Many thanks to all for the interesting and sensible replies,
    Regards David Powell.

      Now cut a circular opening in the top of the paint can lid and glue a circle of transparent plastic over the opening. The DI is protected and you can still read it.

        GLUE ? GLUE? Surely no real machinist has any use for the stuff? . But then do I need a protector for the protector? Just kidding. The lids I used are old and brittle, Just cutting the slots with hand shears showed that. Cutting a hole in the top might well kill them . Regards David Powell.
