Faber-Castell 67/87

(Click for a larger image)

The Faber-Castell 67/87 is a plastic 6-inch simplex pocket rule with the Reitz scale arrangement and extended, self-documenting scales. It's a nice little rule, and that's before you discover its secret: flip it over, and there's a 6-digit addiator on the back!

The addiator is a mechanical adding machine, operated by a pen-like stylus, and it allows you to perform addition and subtraction, something slide rules just don't do very well.

The back also has a few conversion factors, the quadratic formula and some trigonometric identities printed on it.

Scales:
L, K, A, B, CI, C, D, S, ST, T
