Not sure if you got an answer yet, but this has been discussed here before, you can try searching the archives. The consensus is that you need to use current NDS values.

No. 2 D.Fir-Larch aka DF/L

No. 2 Dense D.Fir-Larch aka DF/L

No. 3 D.Fir-Larch aka DF/L


If someone could post the values for the following it would be GREATLY appreciated
