HI! Guys and Gals,
        Big question!!!...Does anyone know what ever happened to the
James Milllen Company? They made one of the best logging-orbital
panel mounted drives I have ever seen. There was practically no backlash
on reversal. I would like to lay my its on some of these little puppys
for some test bench projects I am designing for my shack.

        I guess in the absence of the James Millen company, perhaps
there is another company that makes as good a drive??
  I have looked at Dan's page, and don't believe that the drives that
he has are what I am looking for. Perhaps if I describe the lil gadget
it will help. It is about 3.5 inches wide and 3 inches high. There is
about a 1 1/2 inch dia knob at the bottom of the drive plate. In the
center of the plate is a rugged metal pointer that covers 180 degrees
of arc from left to right ( or visa versa) the plate has an insert
of concentric half circles as logging scales marked from A thru F
as the circles are listed from the smallest to the largest.
        If this rings a bell with anyone , please let me know where I
can get these or some like it???

Yours for Good looking Hardware,
