Help with lesco spreader

I have an old lesco spreader with the numbers on it , I am using anderson products this year. Anybody know how to get a chart to cross the two. I would still calibrate & check, just looking for a starting point.

you must have a newer one because they were all letters until about ten years ago then they went to numbers, I have a Lesco small wheel from the early 1970's mainly used now just for my couple of putting greens but it's all letters Bro.

How much do you guys who use Lesco spreaders over lap for uniform coverage? Do you throw to the last wheel track? I got a new one last week, I calibrated it but still seem to use a little more product then I should. I never had this with my older spreaders, Just trying to find out if it's me(most likely) or if they have some quirk I haven't picked up on.

I (try) to throw to the middle of the tire tracks. There are so many variables...prill size,walking speed,height of person applying changes walking speed, that it's almost impossible to be exact. I try to conciously walk the same speed throughout the app...each and every app.

On our units we pull the third hole slide all the way out then slide it back two notches.
You may need to play with it to get your spread close.
