This GitHub repo

https://github.com/AlexHorovitz/Ohlfs-font-to-ttf-conversion

prompted a little banging on the original font format.  I was able to convert the original font files to a dfont, which has been merged into the above repo.

Oh and there's a TTF as well.
I don't know if these could be better.  Using the original pixel sizes will be cleaner.

GitHub user @tweedyf did some more work with the original font files and pushed results up to
  https://github.com/AlexHorovitz/Ohlfs-font-to-ttf-conversion

as the Light and Medium OTF files.  At some point I'll try these and the CERN ones as web fonts, to replace what I have used at
  http://retro.haleblian.com/next
(which should render in Ohlfs in a modern browser.)

Some lab notes regarding what we were up to here:
