    Re: Bob Goethe's Mark 2 Navigators slide rule, test drive comparisons.

    >>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.

    Bob
