Radian compass...hmmm  I love it!  Perhaps a new product line for me...

OK, OK, OK.  I can't resist even though this is drifting hopelessly OT and let you guys in on the ground floor of this.

One of the small companies that I started about 10 years ago.  
  The Tates Compass Co.

I don't magnitize the needles.  It saves much on Cost and expensive equipment.

Our motto: "He who has a Tates is lost."

Ba Boom tshhh!
