The time it will take to transcribe a particular record sheet depends on whether it is completely filled out, or if all variables are present.
Below is an example of a completely filled out sheet with all variables present:
However, the record sheets can also look like the below, a shorter version. Please be aware that due to this, the order of variables may change, so please pay attention to which field you are filling out so that you are filling it in with the correct value, and not the value of another variable.
It may also be the case that hardly any of the variables are filled in, e.g. only a value for weight is present. Please do still fill out this information, and just leave blank any fields that have not been filled out on the sheet, or that are just not present.
If you spot any odd capital letters or punctuation such as brackets around numbers, please still include these in your transcription, as we want the transcription to be as close to the original data as possible. Finally, please enter square brackets with an ellipsis between (like this: [...]) if you are unsure about a word/number you have transcribed so that it can be found easily and checked at a later date.
Meanings of variable abbreviations and their units of measurement.
Note: please do not include units of measurement in your transcription, these are just to help with figuring out how large/small values should be.
WEIGHT: Weight of axe
POLEDWID: Width of poll edge (g)
LEFEDWID: Max width of left side edge (mm)
RITEDWID: Max width of right side edge (mm)
BLAEDWID: Width of blade edge (mm)

LENGMAXT: Length from blade to point of max thickness (mm)
LENGMAXW: Length from blade to point of max width (mm)
GRIPOLED: Length of poll edge ground (mm)
LONGPOLED: Total length of poll edge (mm)
