Scale ruler
« on: July 22, 2015, 05:42:09 PM »
As a new member and wanting to get into scratchbuilding some wagons I need a scale ruler (none in the society shop :'(), if any member has a spare one they could sell me I would be grateful :).

Can't help you Alan, sorry.

But, I originally designed and drew the rule, getting it etched for the Society.  I handed the the CAD filed a few months back and know they had some problems reading them, but you may want to ask when the new batch (with a couple of corrections!) is due in.

Incidentally, I read the Chairman's report that we need to reduce costs, but is increasing sales a way to improve cash flow.  Anybody care to comment?

I have one of your first batch Mike - you remember - the slightly imperfect ones...??

I'm hanging on to it though - I figure it will worth quite a bit one day once they become collectables....    :D

Regarding the cash flow, yes, increasing sales would be a benefit, especially if they were to supply the basic needs for members.

If a new batch is being produced, can they be of a thicker gauge and of a matt finish?  My present one is very shiny making it very difficult to read.  If they were produced as above, I'd buy another.
