    Re: Traditional navigation by slide rule

    I don’t believe my stripy Faber was as up-market as a 2-83N.  Mine was a fairly simple affair more like this one http://www.ebay.ie/itm/1960s-Faber-Castell-Slide-Rule-Calculator-In-Original-Case-/252135311654

     I don’t even recall it having more than one side, but it looked really smart to a teenager. What a pity I missed the sale. DaveP

    Many think the Faber-Castell 2/83N is the greatest slide rule ever made.
