    I have just been watching Flog It and a guy has sold a slide rule for 130 quid. I never knew how to use one but Jim said it was dead easy.

    Can any of you remember using one of these Slide_rule_cursor

    Remember being shown how to use one either at school or college, but never used one in reall life, did the calculator take over...

    Was it special that it went for £130, or are they a rare item now...

    The one on Flog it was made of wood and was used by Customs and Excise something to do with measuring spirits and beers. They thought it dated to around 1870s

    Well based on the info given, on a pro-rata basis yours is worth £39.13 Cam...

    I'll settle a half then...

    If you put the slide bit to 130 Cam, you can read what yours is worth, somewhere there is a zero in the answer.
