Slide Rule Museum

Monday, March 15th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Welcome to the Slide Rule Museum where you can see slide rules from all over the world, find out what your nerd sign is, and even learn how to use a slide rule!

I want to start with telling you how to discover your nerd sign! Scroll down the right frame of the page. And near the bottom you’ll find a feature called Astrological Nerd Signs, click the blue text Nerd Signs, this will take you to the page where you can scroll down to find your birth date and see what sign you would be. I’m Tux, the Penguin. This was super fun, and worth a laugh!

As to the navigation of the site there are lots of fun features in the right frame that you can scroll down and get a brief description to let you know what it’s about before you explore it. In the left frame you’ll find the main navigation menu. Use the left scroll bar to move further down the menu. On that menu you’ll find that you can look at slide rules in two ways. You can view them by Brand or under the Gallery option.

You’ll also find a section on the left side menu that will teach you how to use a slide rule; just click Slide Rule Course, How to Use a SR. There is also another really neat section on the left menu called Slide Rule Scales, Build Your Own SR.

This is a neat site that makes my inner geek happy! Check it out today!
