When I did this originally I worked from document scans from Bitsavers, and
became convinced from those that the bowls were a little narrower than
perfect circles: <>.

Since then I've got a paper copy of one of the handbooks, so I went today
to get a high-resolution look, and now I agree that they *are* circles, or
intended to be, and the models I used must have been distorted in printing
or scanning: <>.
