Partition table damaged, lost or not usable! How do I find the correct partition offset?

• you are working with a real drive and
- the partition table has been damaged.OR
• you are working with a complete hard disk image and
- you are unable to use the program kpartx.
When do I need the partition start offset?
When you are unable to access the partition then Hfsprescue cannot read the block size and the start block of the Extents Overflow File. Also it's not possible to successful restore the files, because they are stored relative to the partition start.
