    MHR1 reproduction
    From: Wolfgang Hasper
    Date: 2010 Jul 6, 12:04 -0700

    My reproduction of an MHR1 position line slide rule using the phenolic resin tubes is now almost completed, as far as the mechanical parts are concerned.

    If you are interested in this you may want to have a look at the linked photos.
    (zip compressed 7.5 MB)

    I tried to have indicators directly filed into the cursor tube, but will change that to transparent plastic with hairline.

    Only simple tools have been used- drill, file, patience and a jigsaw.
    and some types of nuts, washers and M5 threaded rod. Plus a small bit of 10mm plywood.

    Comments are welcome.
    More tubes are in stock in case anybody wants to start his own project...
