    The cotan scale goes through two cycles so that you do not run off the edge of 
    the scale as commonly happens with slide rules.

     HI,
     Robin:Please remind me why your alternate scales are
     of different width?Since the scales are slanted I
     suppose they are meantto 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 strictlybe of the same
     scale for my purpose, no?Am I missing something
     here?�Hanno��
