    Re: Magnifiers for K&E slide rules

    Thanks, Gary. I kind of suspected that, and a cruise through Gary's
    refs confirmed it.  Last week there was a magnifier 4185-17 which I
    now see from Gary's first reference fits most of the 4080 series
    including the 20" 4081-5. With a magnifier on that who would need a
    calculator?  :-)   -Hewitt
