Spectacular One Of A Kind - Antique Handmade 1908 Signed and Dated Slide Rule. Signed and dated by Richard E. His family have confirmed the provenance of this beautifully done piece. Kronauer was a Engineer for the Erie Susquehanna Railroad and put himself through college in the early 1900's. The family also indicates it could have belonged to an uncle (Richard) who was also an engineer.
This fantastic piece has walnut ends and slide. Not sure of the base wood (probably maple or walnut also).
And laminated wood inked strips. A detailed and workable slide rule. Do you want to confirm that the log of 45 is 1.65?According to this slide rule, it is. The piece itself could use some restoration, but I have kept it in as is condition. The faces are beautifully incised and inked graduations and numbers. The face itself is stained from years of use. The end pieces on one side are missing and only half there on the other side.
One side has chip out of the lamination. The slide itself is perfect and the wood sections slide easily. Please see pictures for details of the condition.It is 22" L x 3" w x 15/16 d. I've checked it against my K&E slide rule, and it proves as accurate. A wonderful "one of a kind" piece for any collection.
