    Check eBay and believe it or not Etsy. You have to be patient but there are ones in good shape that come up regularly for much less than the one you found. eBay lets you set up a search so it will tell you when new items are listed. I can’t find a way to do that on Etsy.

    OMG! With all the talk about slide rules on this thread I decided to see what the market would bear as they say.
    So I googled slide rules and clicked on this sight:


    There was my old K+E Deci-Lon 5 and IT WAS GOING FOR $225!!
    I couldn't believe it; this was a very good slide rule, but it was also my first (H.S. senior / freshman college) slide rule.
    A good solid everyday student slide rule that went for I think $15 in the book store. Are people just waxing nostalgic?


    Do you happen to have a Bygrave slidrule?

    Hi George

    For the Poor Line of Position Calculator ... Absolutely yes!

    And likely for the other stuff too. 

    EBay is the place to sell it.

    I have a Poor circular slide rule - 14 inches in diameter - on a framed board - in my study, part of a very extensive collection of air navigation slide rules. I'm 84 now and my wife wants me to sell the lot before I get my eight-bells. Is there a market out there for this stuff?
