Attached is an attempt at a from scratch sight reduction without logs. A sin cos graph was drawn on the back of a folder to be used with a triangle and dividers. The sight reduction worked out to 110' away (Not so good). What worked better was using just the sin cos scale on a K&E slide rule to 3 places then performing longhand multiplication to 4 places. The result came in within 10' NM.
