Mike Waters makes a machine "the Boxmaker II" that can make corrugated
board clamshell boxes. The machine can make these boxes automatically
when you feed it with the book sizes. In order to do so he developed a
measuring device that can feed its measurements in a laptop computer. It
works with magnetic measure rulers that will translate a small magnetic
current to a digital number(?)if I remember correctly. I saw this device
(hooked up to the machine) in St. Petersburg last september and it
seemed to work well. Mike Waters can be contacted at:
