    Add me as another potential buyer.
    I made one from the core of a paper towel roll a year or two ago, the
    outer tube a single sheet of paper, and the cursor is another paper sheet
    formed into a tube with appropriate cutouts and scribed line riding on the
    whole.  Green masking tape acts as a stop and gripping surface.
    Unfortunately, it is rather flimsy; and I would like the feel of something
    solid.   My version is 1-3/4 inch in diameter,11 inches long overall; and
    is quite easy to handle.
    I wish I had had the foresight to credit the man who sent me the
    information by writing or printing his name somewhere at the end of the
    scales.  Perhaps Zvi Doran, but I'm not sure.
