Pickett 1006 Greg's Slide Rules




Pickett 1006 - Notes

  1. Pickett 5" Trigonometry Rule.
  2. This is an older version of the Pickett N1006-ES trigonometry rule. This rule shows the progression from the older style Pickett as used in the Deci-Point and other early format rules to the modern squared off style with Nylon cursor blocks. Refer to the illustration of the shaped cursor block which is reminiscent of the new style cursor without the nylon block. This model also saw a change to the end pieces such that they completely enclosed the stator bars at the end of the rule. This actually makes it hard to move the slider as the end pieces protrude beyond the end of the stators and when the slide is pushed in fully it does not protrude beyond the covers at the other end of the rule and there is effectively nothing to grip.
