Anyone know anything about these?
Yes, this is a slide rule. I used one of these a lot when I was in High School. Good for multiplying, dividing and basic logarithms.
Well, I know its a slide rule... that's about it!
I have my grandfathers slide rue around here somewhere. Could't bear to throw it out.
Whenever I see a sliderule I think of Mr Oxender, my high school trigonometry teacher. He had the worst dandruff I'd ever seen before or since. You could hear it dropping on your papers if he leaned over you to help. I didn't ask for much help and as a result don't remember very much at all about the slide rule.
Those are really interesting tables, Tom! I like the chunkiness and the smoothness together.
Robin, nice to see you continued turning! Looks like some good practice!
Thanks Blake. Can’t wait to get back to it at Hatch. But for now, I wait and stay home. Stay safe all!!!
Bowl turning recess
After last weeks zoom I discovered that there is a tool that makes a perfect wedged recessed joint that fits perfectly in to your chuck. I think Steve and I were talking about this. I just ordered it. I’ll let you know what I think. If it is as good as “robohippy” says, Steve - then we are all set!
