The TRIGONOMETRIC SCALES are divided in MINUTES(') & SECONDS(")

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 WICHMANN has the PRECISION of a 50 cm slide rule !!!

This historic wooden model comes in a black cardboard case.
It has a table with physical constants on its back side.
In the body under the slider is a 33 ... 55 cm ruler.

Historical Remarks ...

Its shape with screwed scales, its table with physical data on
its back side and also its cardboard case is very like the old
NESTLER - AND! the pressed initials »A.N.« on the side of the
»WICHMANN-1417«  support it: It was made by ALFRED NESTLER.

Compare the SCALE DESIGN with
    the NESTLER »PRAEZISION«,
    the POST-1442 » Dual 10"/5" POCKET-SR «,
    the FABER-CASTELL »COLUMBUS/A.Rohrberg« and
    the "modern" FABER-CASTELL »NOVO-DUPLEX«
