Re: Jefferies Tube construction as seen on TOS

D'oh, you're absolutely right! That will teach me to rush my calculations before heading off to work!

Sorry, back to a 3' tube it is. With a 45 degree cut across the base, simple maths show that the lower opening is indeed 4'3", which matches the screencaps perfectly. I can't believe I fell for that!

All other measurements stand...for now.
