Please remind me why your alternate scales are of different width?
Since the scales are slanted I suppose they are meant
to create helixes ( 'helices'? ) on on cylinders with different diameters, right?
This would be one explanation.
I would like to use them in G.Pook's "flat" mode.
The slant is not much of a problem - a little annoying, though.
However, the underlying log() scale on which the scales are based must strictly
be of the same scale for my purpose, no?
Am I missing something here?
