CorSec vs FFG Dials

A couple of weeks ago I noted that CorSec Engineering was providing acrylic manuever dials for the X-Wing miniatures game. I wanted some for some upcoming boardgame dialprototyping. The guys at CorSec were very nice and sold me a set of ten at a very reasonable price (did not have to worry about minimums).

These ended up being a little longer than I had wanted and a but thinner than the FFG parts. I am sure these are easily fixed with washers/spacers. Here are some pics I took with some Battlestar Galactica resource dials as test pieces

First image:

The set on the Left is CorSec and have three BSG dials and fit snugly.

The Middle is the FFG parts with two BSG Dials.

The set on the Right is CorSec and has two loose BSG dials.

Second Image:

This shows the CorSec with the three dials. It should also be noted that since these are screws, they are not flush like the FFG parts.

Third Image:

This shows the CorSec with two dials.

I would say that these are nice parts to use for prototypes. You can contact them via e-mail if you want to purchase these separately.

Not sure I understand

I was wondering what those dials could be used for??? What does FFG stand for (Fantasy Flight Games)?

What kind of material did you use for the "dials"? It seems thicker than regular cardstock... If so, how do you expect to *print* out other dials???

These are 2mm thick dials from the Fantasy Flight Games Battlestar Galactica Board Game. I think the thickness is also the same for the Star Wars and Star Trek miniatures games' movement dials.

I was planning on printing on Avery labels, laminate them with Xyron sheets, and affix them to similar thickness cardboard.
