European member Dieter von Jezierski shows off his new book (available from Astragal Press) and the Tavernier-Gravet rule which he brought for sale. This great rule garnered a lot of attention from our members.

Long time member Conrad Schure shows off his latest find – a super-rare, very early Keuffel & Esser triangular slide rule. Only 3 are known to exist! You won't see one of these for sale on eBay!
