Factory Care and Cleaning Information for Slide Rules




go right to the catalog! Skip the INTRO, Go RIGHT to the Information!


* Learning how to properly care for your slide rule is easy, but this information is often lost by the time you get a second hand slide rule, and even some new sets don't always answer all your questions. We have tracked down some classic information that K+E, Dietzgen and others used to supply with their rules, and hope it will help you with some problems.
* We have more cleaning and restoration information on the site, since many problems you will encounter with used rules were never contemplated by the original manufacturers. You can see this other restoration data HERE.

K+E Info

* This factory data explains how to clean and align your rule, and useful tips for keeping it clean and protected. You may learn some interesting stuff, so it's worth a good look. When your rule is damaged or in need of repair, go look at the restoration information. We also have some replacement spare parts for your rules located HERE, if you need to make a repair.

* This information was freely distributed with new rules, but note that it is copyright by the repective companies. The K+E data is last copyright 1958. The Dietzgen data has no date indicated, but is from the mid-fifties.
