What are most of you guys doing to create /recreate a Eveready #754 Battery pack?
Thanks!

Do you want a mechanical duplicate or just functional?

I would use a cardboard box of the right size and shape, with vintage graphics printed on the outside. Then use an octal socket for the connector, for reference the locating pin goes in the same place as the protrusion on the octal base. Then use 6 C batteries tapped at the 5th for 7.5V and 9V A supply. And 10 9V transistor batteries for the B supply.

I just made a 467 cardboard battery mock-up last night. I printed the battery image on plain paper and then glues that to some chipboard (single ply cardboard, a printing term). I then cut out the image and glued it together.

Can you tell which one is the original and which is the copy?

The one on the right is the original.

I found the battery image on-line, the chip board I was able to get for free from a print shop. I used an Elmers glue stick to glue it up.
