I'm taking a history of mathematics course, and we talked about slide rules today, and now I want to learn how to use one. Where would I look for one? Any recommendations about which models/features to look for?
I recently found my K&E Decilon, in new condition. It's beautiful, both sides.Sad (for me) to think that they are nothing more than historical relics since us old guys used them all the way through college, but of course, modern calculators ARE functionally much better ... they just aren't as aesthetically pleasing. A well made bamboo based K&E log-log duplex trig slide rule looks like a work of art. Modern calculators look disposable.
