    Thanks Brad,

    Yes, I thought you meant that. Good ah ha idea. Like all these, obvious to mere mortals like me once you show us the light! (now why didn’t I think of that? Thought the same years ago about monoclonal antibodies. I did actually think of that, but that sneaky Nobel Laureate got there first!).0

     I’ll test run a transparency cos scale over the top of the current cos and sine scale on my big Fuller 2 and see how it goes. The current layout allows multiplication and division of sines and cosines. But indirectly via the A (or is it C or D) regular scale, which involves several extra moves. More asap.

    Francis
