    Just thought I would post a Spreadsheet to do Conversions for various gauges

    Thanks to MCL - for the help!! LOL

    Just click on the number "24" Under "input" and put in the dimension in inches (or Tenths) that you actually measured on your layout. Then hit "Enter"

    The output (under the scale of your choice) will display Ft & Inches. What it would be on the prototype.

    It was created with MS Office 2000 - you might need it to make the spreadsheet work. Let me know if it works "off the net" without MS O2002

    If you think I should do it opposit - You enter the prototype measurment - and it shows you scale - let me know & I'll do it.

    Rich - do you have MS Excel 2000 in your computer - that might be the problem :( with the others....

    Try hitting Refresh guys - it might work. But I don't know if it will load into your amchine if you don't have Excel 2000.

    Here ya go -
    Input is the Prototype Size in inches (Default 600 or 50 Ft)

    the results show how big it should be in inches on your layout

    I think having 2000 is it. if you look at the source code there is a reference to mso 9 and I think the "97" version of software were number 8 on the scale. Maybe you can save the spreadsheet in an earlier version format and see if that helps us poor, outdated folks.
