I found this map measuring device at REI-- figured it would be useful for truing up patterns.
It's normally used for tracing a squiggly road on a map, and getting a distance in miles, nautical miles, or kilometers. And that's it.
However if you set the wheel to 1:63360 (one inch to a mile)-- it's a one to one scale--just ignore the MI indicator.
But I haven't had it long--is it truly handy to have in the sewing studio?
