I might point out that bringing the edges into final alignment might most
easily be
accomplished with coaxial lines trimmed to the right lengths.  At most the
line for
 10 MHz would need to be ~66 feet long (assuming the usual 66% VF for
dielectric), and the worst case length for the 100 MHz signal would be
under ~7 feet.

I suspect that the logic circuitry (and possibly the delay lines) for this
project may
need some degree of temperature stabilization as well, in order to maintain
desired alignment accuracy over time.
