    Re: Traditional navigation by slide rule

    >>3D printing might be marginally useful for the bulk sliding parts, but it would not do all that well with engraved scales<<

    This is the same word I got also from a salesman at MakerBot.  He said that year 2016 was still relatively early days in terms of 3-D printing, and that the process was not yet up to the challenge of the kind of slide rule project I was describing to him.

    >>the Pickett route.... the PCB route....<<

    These suggestions are like gold to me, Peter.  Thank you!!  I have been a little stuck on the very basic issue of fabrication, but you have given me new avenues to explore.
