Finally real after 10 + years

I've been intrigued with artist scaling tools all of my career. In 2008 I started a project to digitize some on the analog devices I had used over the years. I did a proportional scaling wheel then gave up. I've been hacking around with this for the last five years. I've bought at least a dozen different variation on this and they all suck for the most part. I wanted a pair of dividers that had scaling settings for 4 to 1, 3 to1, and 2 to 1. The most common need in scaling from standard sized prints. A little math and a 3d printer and I made it. Scales 4, 3, 2.5, 2 and 1.5 to 1. Very accurate. Thank you Mrs. Eddy, my high school geometry teacher. I'm planning on making this available online for people to print for themselves
