Have you seen the docs at Vinyl Engine? They have the original protractor. Make sure you're not scaling when you print. That would be a problem. Print at 100% scale.

I tried to get the protractor from vinylengine but they don't allow me to login after I register and you must login if you want to download the protractor.
Maybe they see my IP (Israel) as a security hazard :-(
I need the "original rega protractor (en)"
from here : http://www.vinylengine.com/ve_downloads/index.php?rega/rega_template.pdf
If anybody can send it to me, I would be grateful.

I downloaded various turntable strobe discs for 50hz and I see nothing but grey circles when turntable is running.
I think it's because I have to use this device which I don't have :
Does anybody know of more affordable options ? After all, it's not going to be used so often...

Actually, it may make it easier to see, I don't know. With an incandescent light it's a bit tricky especially if the speed is off. I need to stare towards the middle of the platter and not focus in a way, and then I see it. If the speed is off it likes a little like if you were looking at airplane propellers, they sort of move backwards slowly...
"Umm, to make money? ;)"
OK...I got home and tried both incandescent and lED light.
LED didn't work but incandescent worked perfect.
I definitely see the lines now. They are almost stationary. Not completely stationary because I remember my dealer once told me that my speed is about 5% faster that 33.3
I changed the speed to 45 and now the circle of the 45 is almost stationary.
Thank you guys !
