  2. Think trundle wheel.......only smaller.
     
  3. You might find the roma on the side of a compass helpful. First measure the distance with that (and the side of a sheet of paper as you were taugh in basic training). Then use you digital thingy to make sure yu are right!

    Hope this helps - knew my MAPRIC course would come in handy!

    Cheers
