I am only 32 , but i have my dads 18" bamboo K&E on my boat for any calculations i need. My dad was using it when he designed the black box on boeings 737, and various instruments on the 747 and space shuttle. He spent quite a few trips to the assension islands to do weather baloon testing on his instruments. i was in the EE program at the University of wisconsin for a little while, never did finish it. He was my age when he was killed in a plane crash at chicago's airport in Dec.1972. Fog had the controller asign the same runway to a plane taking off and one landing. I am still trying to figure out a couple of the functions on the slide rule. You wouldn't happen to know of a good resource for how to use the whole thing? I know there are such things as electronic calculators but I like using the bamboo. Got offered a job in seattle yesterday. Might be out there as soon as easter. jim C26 ----- Original Message ----- From: "Paul W. Esterle" pesterle@...

I have the great pocket-sized K&E in the leather pocket clip case right in front of me. Bought it new about 35 years ago. I use it both ashore and on the boat.
Jim, someplace in my archives I have the complete hard-bound log-log decitrig K&E manual. If I find it - I'll look over the weekend -
I'll post here and you can send me a mail address. No charge but I do want it back!
