Tony Oz made a suggestion to me, by email, that I include decimal points on the C-scale and D-scale for the numbers between 1 and 2. It is an interesting idea, and one that I had never considered prior to his suggestion.
I would appreciate some feedback from those of you who are slide rule users/lovers. At present, between 1 and 2, I have smaller numbers for 1 through 9. Would the clarity for these scales be improved if those smaller numbers from 1 through 9 had a decimal point prefixed to them?
Thanks for your thoughts on this.
