index to the complete book



Some 400 pages of hands on, empirical, geometric,
trigonometric, CAD,  and spreadsheet dial design for
small dials plus garden dials using common masonry
supplies, clay, and glass, with emphasis on many
calendar line techniques, and Italian/Babylonian lines
also, while providing details on the use of DeltaCAD
programming including the animation of many sheets
as parameters vary.  Case studies abound with
associated problems solved, and cover the infamous
inclined decliner, as well as all the other kinds of
outdoor dials.  The CD has all books and booklets and
programs along with source code.
