octagon rafter table

Can anyone point me to an online resource listing the octagon rafter table values that would have appeared on older framing squares?
Thanks,
Terry

The square has an octagon scale. It is for creating an octagon from a solid timber. It has nothing to do with rafters. The rafter scale is different and in a different location on the square. ______________________________ Keep the whole world singing . . . . DanG (remove the sevens) snipped-for-privacy@7cox.net

I was not asking about the octagon or '8-square' scale, but the octagon rafter table. It appears on very old squares designed for framing octagon roofs.
