Well I took the thang to the meeting last night of the Central Oregon Woodworkers and we are closer to the answer.

At least we know what the fractions refer to.
Referring to the outer pins, one is 3/8” from the end of the bar to the pin, the other, no surprise now, 1/2”.

What exactly is the value of having these two absolutes aboard a device which finds centers? That’s the remaining question. But I find comfort in knowing THAT they’re there and where they are.

My thanks to Jeff F. and those around him who figured this much out. Smart folks, all of them.
