Where can I find a "scale" for photos???

Postby Rick Brinkman » Jan 12, 2006 2:25 pm

I often take pics of bones in caves. I used to use the ruler on my Leatherman for scale, but my new one doesn't have the ruler.

Where can I find one of those nifty scales that archeologists use???
Caves are rare and precious things. Cavers...even more so. Treat each accordingly.

Rick,

Try a drafting or drawing store. 6" plastic/fiberglass scales are what I have used in the past.

Certainly Leatherman has a model with a ruler on it still, doesn't it? That's odd they would stop that.
