    Re: Push out laser cut plywood models from China

    The wood sextant.  I looked at the scale image, only degrees without vernier, so no accurat reading possible.  Just for the fun and sextant working idea.  HermanD

    Yes, that might be a problem.  So long as the divisions were regular you might be able to fashion a Vernier.  It wouldn’t even need to be inline with the arrow; it could be some way ahead.  I think the lack of shades would be a worse problem.  It would be OK for measuring trees, buildings, towers etc.  I think I prefer my own plywood sextant.  DaveP
