It does not help you with your 238, but I heard that Ten Tec got rid of the 
slide rule dial in the new 238A tuner to improve the repeatability of the 
inductor setting and to eliminate mechanical problems associated with the 
dial itself.

The new tuner has replaced the slide rule dial with a calibrated 
vernier-type dial/knob for the inductor -- there is a nice gear-reduction 
unit between the inductor's knob and the inductor itself.  I bought a 238A 
last fall.  I have found the vernier dial to be very accurate and I can 
easily make repeatable tuner settings as I change bands and antennas.
