Ken,

The old scope you are describing is what Redfield called their widefield with range finder reticle. The 2 parallel crosshairs represent an 18" separation; supposedly the width of a mule deer...

I bought a Harbor Freight bench sander years ago for about $60. I've only used it for recoil pads. I've probably fitted a dozen with it. The only problem is that it is another thing to store!
