Books. Bikes. Boomsticks.

Look, if you can't fix it with brass tube and solder, it probably doesn't need fixing quite so badly.(That said I've also got a thing for finely milled repair parts, but vive la difference, no?)Jim
Oh, my... I had NO idea your roomie was into older tech. My only question is why doesn't she mention slide rules on her blog header?
...Who said I didn't? I mean, not now I don't not mention them any more.... ;) I just wish my all-metal 6" utility-grade slipstick hadn't been in the toolbox that got nipped from my olllld place long ago.
RX, I always preferred bamboo over metal for sliderules. The action feels smoother. Mine is a Post 1460 Versalog.
It was a toolbox edition, after all. I've never owned a better one than that; all my others are plastic.
