USD $165

Class D(ish): What happens when you have a rule of this type that’s missing a box and some other items, that’s not quite a Class D, but isn’t quite a Class E?  The result?  The Dish Class.  Reasonable condition.  Visible/pronounced scale bleeding on both sides, the case on this rule isn’t as nice as a full Class D, but it’s also on sale…

Considered to be the most advanced slide rule produced: gold anodized adjustable aluminum end braces, duplex 5/4-line cursor, two color (red/black) scale markings, and trademark mint green stripe on primary scales (both sides), plus additional blue stripes on the A and B scales, and massive 2 1/4″ wide body.  Expanded W square root scales, for both the square root of x and 10x, 8 log log scales, and raised rubber bumpers to prevent cursor scraping, and to give the rule grip on a desktop.  Body is fully alignable at the aluminum end-pieces, and provides finger grip areas on the slide for better movement.  Cursor pops off (note the recess on the side bars) for easy cleaning, while retaining its alignment, a very handy feature!  Rule is self documenting on right hand side for all scales. Has Pythagorean scale (P), expanded square scales, folded scales and scale over-ranges.  Includes: Case, original manual, and accessory rule.
