I am looking to make a replica of an ISS or shuttle EVA cuff checklist. Does anyone know how to make one and could send me the instructions, or better yet make me one?

I am looking for one to display at space shows and would consider it a fine donation to our organization, One Giant Leap, Inc.

To encourage anyone who might be considering making these I'm interested in purchasing one too. Thank you.

For reference, here's a list of some of the best photos of checklists I was able to come up with:

STS-126, STS-126, STS-126, Expedition 28, STS-126, STS-135, STS-114, STS-135, STS-135, STS-134, STS-134, STS-134, STS-134

For further reference, here's a database of flight data files with both generic space shuttle data files, and data files for specific space shuttle missions.

Based on the photos, it looks like it's just printed on some kind of card paper with tabs (the ones used in the NBL are obviously on waterproof paper) and binded together with a metal spiral. If you just want to make a high-fidelity replica, it doesn't have to use the exact same type of paper. If you want to also make the metal clip that it attaches to, that would be trickier though.

The pages could be laminated, which is how the Apollo cuff checklists were made. The wrist mount is aluminum with copper inserts and a stainless steel spiral wire to hold the pages. That would require a machine shop and an actual cuff checklist. Can be done. It has been done by Global Effects at one time.
