hex-logic pad chart

not sure if this is allowed and in the right section. if not please move or delete.

after searching for a set of pads for my rotary i decided on hex-logic pads, but wanted something in the garage just to help remind me what colour does what, i remember seeing something like this a while ago but couldnt find, so i have made one myself in photoshop.


link to proper file

This has been done before

Although yours looks better on here, when you save a copy it is all stretched and almost unreadable.

i prefer this one to the one before, its easier to read with pics of the pads and i like the funky font lol..

other one is very professional... maybe its better for pros who don't want a full colour graphicy one like this on there wall if customers see it.

The bold coloured writing is maybe a tad playschool but it's easy to read.
