Sure brings back happy memories of when we always carried a rule with us even sometimes if it was a six inch. Congrats on your POTD

Geof, Linn, Bill, Joan, Norma, thank you very much for your kind comments. This Slide rule was my father's one from 1937 to 1969, when I went to the university and he gave it to me. ... and, of course, it brings back very nice memories.
