    Re: Another cylindrical bygrave

    An idea:-

    It would be interesting for someone here who has access to all the different scales and/or programmes to produce them for the Bygrave slide rule, to have them made available in one place.

    If the source code is also made available, there may be programmers worldwide who can improve the scales appearance or ease of use (colours, pitch adjustment, length of scale adjustment etc) and who can then re-issue their version for further improvement in the same way that Linux was made available for development.

    My friend Peter Martinez who produced a simple form of the scale but who is now otherwise engaged in other research and therefore has no time to develop a better version might be persuaded to become involved again if source code was available to 'play with'. He programmes in Delphi. I have some limited experience of 'C'.
