When I compare different marks each takes another value for meters per nautical mile. Same goes for Drawing 22. Not to German standards if you ask me.
I agree. When I made my wheel used those images and I did notice that too, some results differed (albeit slightly) from the actual math. It must be an issue with the website creator’s scan. He appears to have had KM doctrine books in his possession and maybe the scan from the book was a bit distorted.

I suppose one could recalibrate the wheel, that’s beyond my capabilities at the moment!

Been using my excel file instead as my wheel needs some repair.
