Pickett Model 2 (2) - Notes

  1. There appear to be at least three variations of this model, this one is also a Deci Log but it is different to the other Pickett Model 2 (1) available on this site.
  2. The main variations between this rule and the other example are that the CI scale on this rule in White on Black (not the reverse) and the instructions have been moved around on the reverse.
  3. Unlike K+E or Hemmi who used a "engine divided" or engraved process Pickett appears to have used a standard rule size and then used a photographic process to place the scales on the rules. This may have enabled Pickett to play with their design somewhat in their early years.
