Fowler CalculatorFowler Long Scale Slide Rule / Calculator   Fowler is a well known English name in circular sliderules / calculators.  They made a variety of different models and size calculators including many circular versions like this one.  Some were designed for architects, or engineers, and others were made for the textile trades.  Larger ones are referred to as Magnums, and this 2 3/4" model is referred to as the pocket size.    This Long Scale Fowler calculator is in super like new condition with its outer hard shell marked case.  The original instructions are included as well.

Farm / Gestation Circular Calculator / Computer / Slide RuleVernon Farm Calculator / Circular Computer / Slide Rule for Farm / Gestation    This unusual 12" farm related advertising circular sliderule / calculator dates from the 40's -50's.  It was made by the Vernon Company of Vernon Iowa and was copyrighted in 1948 by George De Vries.  They can be found with many different names and locations from all over the Midwest.  I believe they were give-aways from different seed companies, grain dealers and farm equipment dealers.  This one is from an outfit, Glen R. Green of Ridgeway MI that dealt in Ferguson Tractors and farm equipment.

They were a very well made device that held up well over the years and many are found in super condition.  That is probably explained by the fact this was a solution looking for a problem that did not really exist.  I doubt many farmers of the time really saw, felt, or understood the need to use it and most ended up in the drawer or hung on the wall.  Look at all of the pics to get a sense of all the different things this could compute for the user.     An interesting calculator in super condition.

Consul the Educated Monkey CalculatorConsul the Educated Monkey Calculator   This is a real, early, and original model of this great idea.  It is not one of the new fake knock-offs.  These came out about the time of the Scopes trial back near the turn of the century in TN in the seminal case pitting creationists against teaching evolution in our schools.  I wouldn't doubt that this idea was introduced as a tongue in cheek way to drive the creationists of that era crazy.  Think of it, a monkey teaching kids how to add, subtract, or multiply.  Blasphemy.  Maybe not though, if todays wingnuts get one more appointment to the Supreme Court who knows what tomorrows kids are going to be taught in schools.  Who you voting for? 
Nice!!

1851 Patent Interest CalculatorSeptember 2, 1851 Patent Samuel Young Interest Calculator  The patent holder of this unusual slide rule like interest calculator was named Samuel Young and he hailed from Eaton Ohio.  The patent number is 8329 and the patent can be looked up using Google.  It is a rare and early piece that there is little reference to or information about on the internet.  The Smithsonian has the patent model for it, and has a pretty extensive write-up on the patentee.  That page can be seen here  http://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?q=record_ID%3Anmah_690825&repo=DPLA

In reading his Bio there it seems he had two other patents for other calculation devices with this one being the middle one.   The overall condition is pretty nice noting that one of the slides is damaged.  The patent lays out how it is operated and what the scales are for and how to use it.   From my reading it seems different bars represent days, weeks, months and so forth.  Different and an opportunity not to be missed. 

Good . . . . . $ SOLD!

Lee's Amortizer Interest Rate Slide RuleLee's Amortizer Interest Rate Slide Rule   There was a time, back a while ago, when the % rates on this unusual slide rule to determine payment amounts for a given interest rate did not go high enough to cover where rates were when trying to determine a mortgage payment.  Now they do not go low enough as the ranges are from 4 - 8%.  The best part though is the gross amounts that the examples inside the top of the lid discuss.  They are talking about paying down 10,000 loans with $50.00 - $100.00 / month payments.  The good old days.   

Fine . . . . .$45.00 SOLD!



Novotni Weight Slide RuleNovotni Weight Slide Rule   This plastic sliderule is like new in the box w/ the instructions.  The instructions give many examples and tell the reader how much he will save in time, money, and materials if he will just take the time to master the use of this.  The previous owner of this one added a few numbers to customize it for his applications.  Different and. Nice!!

Fine . . . . .$35.00 SOLD!





Halden Calculex Circular Slide Rule / CalculatorHalden Calculex Circular Slide Rule / Calculator  The condition is excellent and it is complete with its instruction booklet and flip top aluminum case.  It is English and this one is only marked with the original makers name. This type calculator was offered by several different distributers like Dietzgen, and K & E and others back around the turn of the century.     A piece of calculation  history.

Fine  . . . . .$150.00       SOLD!!








Dietzgen Slide Rule w/ Magnifier & Humped CaseDietzgen 3193 Slide Rule w/ Magnifier & Humped Case  This is an unusual variant with a fitted magnifier and its original nice condition humped leather case to allow for that.  The overall condition of the rule itself is nice.   I believe it is the equivalent of a K & E 4053-3.  It is marked w/ 2 patent dates.  August 9 1904, and June 28 1898.  Nice!!

Good + . . . . . $50.00   SOLD!!






Eastman Kodak X-Ray Exposure Slide Rule     There is a copyright date of 1919 on the back side of this unusual double slide slide rule.  There are also directions for use here that are pretty vague and lead one to wonder how many people they were overdosing when they were performing this new technology on patients way back when.  One of the two slides that move has scales on both sides talking about the spark gap and tube distance.  THe other is for the type of film used.   The fixed scale on one side is all about different body parts and on the other is exposure time in seconds ranging from 1/16th to 64.  

There is a slight bend in the body of this (probably due to overexposure), but everything still moves and slides as it should.  It measures 2.5 x 5".  The outer case as seen in the picture is a bit ratty, but the rule itself is pretty nice, noting one minor tight crack in the bottom right corner in the greenish cover.   A rare an unusual piece of medical or X-Ray related memorabilia.

Good . . . . .$195.00       SOLD



Nestler # 0260 Mecanica Slide Rule  This 10" rule is mint in its case.  Very Nice

Good . . . . .  SOLD



Aristo-Commerz #965 Slide Rule  This is a nice rule by one of the earliest of German makers.    The case and rule are virtually unused.  Different and Nice!

Good . . . . .   SOLD



Jason # 803 by Relay   This rule is in super condition.  The case is as new, noting that Wolfgang signed it on the inside.  The rule is like new as well.  Relay made a series of rules under different company names hat are the same quality and have similar features to those made by Hemi, and are in general far rarer and more difficult to find than those.  This is an exceptional rule condition wise.  It has 25 scales no serial # and is as nice as one could hope for.

Good . . . . .  SOLD



12" Boxwood Sector Rule    This unusual rule is the forerunner to the slide rule, and they are often found in the 6" size, but are quite unusual in this 12" size.  This example is unmarked as to maker, but probably dates from the early 1800's.  The condition is quite nice noting the two small dings on the upper rail.  I have never fully understood the proper operation of these devices, but the information has been published, and I have been to websites that discuss their use in detail.  Different and Nice!!

Good . . . . .   SOLD



Pickett Model # 6-T Statistical Quality Control Slide Rule    Overall this rule is in very good condition.  Special use slide rules from any company are much more difficult to find, and this one aimed at statistical analysis is no exception.  I count 28 scales to keep you occupied, and I wish I could tell you the significance of them, or why this is special for statisticians but I cannot.  I do know that only a few have been offered at the internet auction, and that new in the box I have seen them for a lot more money than this one.

Good . . . . .   SOLD



The Smallwood Calculator  The adding machine itself is near mint, as is the walnut base it is set into.  Marcia Palmer did lightly put her name in the top rail.  The small wooden original stylus is present.  The protective case, which is a triangular cardboard box, has one end popped loose, and the patent date is on the front of it in small gold lettering and looks to be Feb. 23, 1---, with the last numbers being unreadable.  These interesting and desirable adders were produced by different manufacturers over the years.  This example, The Smallwood,  from Oakland, CA,  is one of the harder ones to find, and even more so in this condition.

Good . . . . .   SOLD



Castell / Faber #2/83 Novo Duplex Slide Rule   This rule is 15" long and is one of the most sought after and popular of all rules put out by this company.  There are at least 30 scales, and a host of color schemes to help you keep things figured out.  If you need help with them the super condition 30 page manual is here as well.  There is also a conversion chart and ruler in the bottom of the case.  The rule is in excellent condition, and has no problems with any aspect of it.  The case is cracked across the bottom.  A rare rule, and a welcome addition to the hoard.

Good . . . . .   SOLD



Otis King Model A #6992 Circular Telescoping Slide Rule / Calculator   Here is an early version of this English favorite, and it is in super condition.  There are two scales #423 & 414, which are both in great condition, with no peeling or other problems.  These earlier models were done in white on black for the scales to give them more contrast.  I have had later models that were done reverse of this.  This one also has a small ring at the top which later versions do not have as well.  Lastly there is the calfskin slip cover that has the name still visible, but it is in a very fragile state, and both the top and bottom are missing.

Good . . . . .  SOLD



Lafayette  #98-70129 Vectorlog Slide Rule  This rule was made by Relay a competitor of Hemmi.  It is slightly dirty, but in very nice overall condition.  I count 26 separate scales.  The leather case is nice with minor scuffs. These off brand versions of rules are becoming increasingly hard to find, and should be a good investment in the long term.  This is a nice one.

Good . . . . .  SOLD
