You can download fingering charts for STL Ocarinas here. If you can't find what you're looking for, please ask for assistance.

Can you possibly upload these fingering charts as Adobe PDF files? If these pictures are vector based, their quality would be a lot better if saved as PDF...

There are pdf files on the blog somewhere.  I actually got them from there but converted them to images so that they would load faster and wouldn't require bloatware like Acrobat.

The files supplied in the blog are actually just black-and-white scans (though in higher resolution than the pictures above).
So, they aren't vector based graphics as well. I guess I have to make them on my own then. If I finish them, I'll upload them somewhere so everyone can get them. I'll only do the 12 hole and 6 hole ocarinas though (6 hole is the rupee ocarina).

Awesome.  Aren't PNG files vectored?  You could post the PNG files, which IMO would be superior to pdfs.

I don't believe so. All basic picture file formats I know are pixel-based (bmp, gif, jpeg, png), meaning they have a set resolution which can't be changed (afterwards). According to wikipedia the svg format is vector scaled. I might be able to save svg files with OpenOffice, but since I'm creating my vector based graphics with MS Visio, I don't know wether they can be imported into OpenOffice without any problems (yet).
If I create a whole page of 12-hole tabs and save it as a picture, it is at least 100kB in size. Saved as pdf I can scale it up to any size my printer can handle with perfect sharpness, and the size of the PDF is barely a few 10kB.
I have yet to find a page where I can upload my files...

P.S.: If you'd like a "sample" I can send you the Tabs I re-made for Saria's Song as PDF (for the 6-hole Zelda Rupee Ocarina) by eMail (send me a private message if you're interested).

These are all broken. I will pull them off the blog when I get the time tomorrow. This project has been put off, sorry for the inconvenience.

Does anyone know where I could find a fingering chart for my 11 hole Wide Range Tenor Ocarina? I've been all over the internet and just can't find one. Any 11 hole fingering charts I find are usually alto flutes, and they'll have eight holes on top--not the case for mine, seven holes on top with the hole pressed on by my right index finger also have a tiny little hole just above it.

If someone could please update the fingering chart list to include a chart for the 6-hole tenor rupee ocarina, I could greatly appreciate it. I noticed in one of the other threads (and from trying to play scales on the one I recently purchased) that a couple of the fingerings are off from other 6-hole ocarinas. I think just B flat and B natural, but there could be others. I'm not sure, which is why I'd like a complete chart. Thank you for your time and help.  :)
