    Re: Flat Bygrave alternative configuration

    HI, Robin:

    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?

     

    Hanno
