    Hanno,
    Please refer to my NavList post #12496 from march 22. 
    2010 for the procedure. (quoted below)
    
    As soon as the money arrives via PayPal I will send out 
    the tubes.
    
    I am looking forward to learning about your slide rule 
    building experiences.
    
    best regards
    Wolfgang
