Mast divider -- where do I buy a pair?
Anyone know where I can buy a pair of "mast dividers" (see p.32 of AMYA's Model Yachting magazine Issue# 138 )?
No sellers came up in Google results, so I'm hoping someone "in the know" here might be able to point me in the right direction.
You use mast dividers to check whether your mast is vertical (perpendicular to the deck) when rigging it up. I'd rather buy a pair than spend my time making one that might not even be accurate.
Any help/info would be much appreciated. Thx much in advance!

I had a set many years ago, but were made by the guy who built the boat. All they are is two pieces of stock, hinged through a pin, that have equal length legs. Probably hard to find pre made, because lots of guys will lay the boat on it's side and measure from the table to the masthead, then flip the boat over and measure again. The two sides must be equal.

there's an easier way---just buy a folding wood ruler. it has two useful
functions, 1) folded in a "v" shape you can check the side to side set of your mast.
2) folded in a "L" shape you can check the fore and aft set, just using it as a
"square" . Dave's method is more accurate, but pondside this can be easier.
