A client came to us with a plastic part for an old International Harvester fridge from the 1950s. The fridge featured a customizable door. The part in question was a door handle that could be switched out. It was in bad shape. The part was cracked in many places, edges broken off, and a set of holes were drilled into it
With some flat bed scanning, which is more useful than one would thing, and a digital caliper I was able to recreate the handle fairly easily. One tricky part was matching the font. Using a web site called What the font, I was able to find a close match to the original font.
