Thanks. I tried some typeface detection websites but even they couldn't come up with anything. It looks like the model numbers are in a different typeface?
Yes, they are set separately, and apparently in a slightly inconsistent
set of faces (since they're all done at different times).
tried to reproduce the letters with Open Office Draw, but it's a
terrible tool to play with.
It's all a question of how close you want it. I'd be happy to help
redraw the TEKTRONIX INC characters in say Illustrator -- but after all
that effort you'd still be stuck for model number setting.
I think I could find a commercial $$ font that is fairly close, but I
assume you'd prefer a free font? That narrows it down a lot -- and few
free fonts are very high quality. However I did find this free font:
Of course it's not exactly the same, but it looks quite attractive, and
I'd argue it's probably close enough.
