The overview is in English but the program is in French. Looks handy.

Had one of those :idea: moments...

I can just make a chart on my wheel, take it off and measure all the markings, then create a replica with 3D modeling (CAD/CAM) software...I can't believe I never thought of that :oops: :lol:

I could turn the markings into angular graduations and use an indexing head the machine the yardage markings into the side wheel with a 1/64" or 1/32" endmill as well 8-)

Making markings permanent may not be the best. As your eyes change, so do those marks.

I don't quite understand this, if I am using a needle point indicator what will change? or do you mean my perception of objects/ranges through the scope?

If there was a significant change I could just make another side wheel :P

Ah, to be a machinist with young eyes...
;)

PS. Most of the micro reducers I got from you have been drilled out to a 'friendly' 15mm - couldn't see, let alone shoot, the tiny KZs.
