HELP!
I have two rules like this (20 inch Nestler), both with damaged cursors. I need spare glass (top and side) or new cursors. I belive other Nestler 20" models like the 24 will also work to some degree. Happy to buy or swap for replacement parts.

Walter (the guy that maintains this site) is looking for these things, EMAIL HIM if you can help!
