============================================================
Because the scales W1/W1' start at 1 and end at sqrt(10)
    and the scales W2/W2' start at sqrt(10) and end at 10
the 25 cm NOVO-DUPLEX has the PRECISION of a 50 cm SlideRule

The slide rules is shielded in an acrylic box.  A ruler with
physical constants and conversion factors belongs to the set
together with an instruction booklet.

Historical Remarks ...

Compare the SCALE DESIGN with
    the NESTLER »PRAEZISION«,
    the »WICHMANN-1417« ( made by A.N. = Albert Nestler),
    the POST-1442 » Dual 10"/5" POCKET-SR « and
    the FABER-CASTELL »COLUMBUS/A.Rohrberg«
