>>Congrats to Bob for a very good slide rule.<<
Thank you for the complement, Francis!! I thrive on affirmation, and am delighted that your testing showed positive results.
Here in the early winter/late autumn, my father had a stroke and, a week later, died. This brought all of my regular life activities to a halt as I spent time in the hospital during that last week, and then hosted a collection of family members who flew in for the funeral.
2016 was to be the year of fabricating the Mark 2 Navigators' Slide Rule...but that simply didn't come to pass. I am determined to take another run at this in 2017. My hope would be to make myself one, and to use a fabrication technique that would lend itself to making a further few for those NavListers who would like one.
I was unable to download the document you attached to your last post. I will work on that again when I get a bit more on top of life.
