    Speaking of slide rules

    The other day, likely the last one I will buy arrived in the mail, bought via e bay, unless a Bygrave type rule shows up, inexpensively, or I opt for building my own. It's a K & E 4081-3, which appears to be in proper condition. The rule itself is a bit dirty, I suspect that it will clean up. The spring in the cursor is a little stiffer than others I've seen, but no sign of K & E Cursor Rot, and everything seems to align properly. I noticed several other 4081-3's offered, some of the prices striking me as ridiculous, others reasonable. One pays their money and takes their choice. Fascinating things.
