Slide Rules Back in Production



#10

There must be some kind of geek chic factor involved in slide rules, because ThinkGeek have started manufacturing slide rules. See http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/tools/be12/?cpg=101T.

Perhaps they could also get in the true RPN vintage calculator business?

#12

YIKES! I just checked TAS, and a Post Versalog (like mine) is at $70! I think I'll start using it again...

#13

What! No belt loop?

These new fangled slide whatchamacallits are just a flash in the pan. I'll stick with my good ole Curta.


#14

You bet, i have taken my curta II through british security and had to demonstrate it's use before they let me through!

Cheers,

If not, I'm out. ;) (and it's not me only! ;) )

#16

They ought to carry a warning on the package "Batteries Not Included" ;-)


#18

Pickett-look box, might be a clone of one of the training Picketts.

Warning: Batteries not required; thinking not provided.
