***One Dietzgen's best rules, still in incredible condition! Dietzgen's high end rules are frequently compared to that other major U.S. slide rule maker, K&E, which had very similar offerings. This model in fact is very close in design to the top of line K&E N4081-3, with the addition of an inverted DI scale on the reverse side. Like that later model K&E, this Multiplex Decimal Trig Log Log rule also features relieved wood edges, though without the labelled celluloid laminate strip the K&E models sport. In fact even their cases are almost identical, featuring black leather bolted on to a hard cardboard base. The patina of this rule remains exceptionally white, and the wood seems to be mahogany (typical in K&E rules, but Dietzgen seemed to use a variety of materials). This rule also features an all metal cursor arrangement, and has a more substantial feel than the K&E rules, although it does seem a bit dated in style. Judging from the various patent dates, this rule probably stems from the mid to late 50's, like the equivalent K&E model. Clearly one of Dietzgen's best rules
