The Dreyer table's wind dumaresq is not really doing anything at the moment, as I have no good information on how this device worked. If anyone has manuals or detailed images of the device, I'd sure love to see them.

I believe the wind dumaresq had a cylindrical drum which related later wind speed to knots of corrected deflection at the given gun range on the table. I'd want to see that in more detail before I waste time modeling a guess.
