The Oughtred Society
Slide Rule Reference Manual

The Manual.

This new Oughtred Society Slide Rule Reference Manual contains basic slide rule instructions, plus over 100 color photos of slide rules, and much contemporary information, including chapters on such subjects as History of the Slide Rule, Slide Rules on the Internet, Cleaning and Caring for Your Slide Rule, Collecting Slide Rules, Major Slide Rule Makers and Some of Their Common Models, Slide Rules for Special Applications, Tricks and Time Savers, etc. Click on the images at the right to see full-size sample pages.

Many, though not all of the page images, are larger than will fully display in a default browser and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 uses automatic image resizing to make it fit without scrolling. To display an image at full size (if it is not already), place the cursor over the lower-right corner of the image and see if the resizing icon appears.
