Large Cylindrical K&E Slide Rule


For those into obscure slide rules, here's one I have not seen before:Yabe link



Man! That thing looks gorgeous! (Too bad it doesn't have a $10.00 Buy It Now . . . )


And, for your next problem, how big would it have to be to give 12 significant figures?


You might have to move to another state to use one, as I'm not sure it would fit in Oregon. Power consumption for the motors needed to operate it might be a concern.

I wonder what it cost new?


Current bid $1825 and a seller with only 9 positive feedbacks - I wonder if the slide rule's accuracy is high enough to compute that risk... ;-)
