. . .and another version in the standard tray, which makes it much easier to work with them. This version has a removable divider which keeps them in form, and a slot for the book.

  • Yes, this is more like the one my father made sans book of course. It looks to be about 2″ long and 1″ wide. Is that close? Is the book blank?
    Let me know about size and price. Oh dear me——

    Here you go: the tray is 1 1/2″ x 2 5/16″, the book is 1 3/16″ x 7/8″, and the rods are 1 3/16″ long. I’m going to try to get the rods and the book down under 1″, which would make the tray about . . . . .1 3/16″ x 2 1/8″. The book is the complete text of E. W. Hobson’s John Napier and the Invention of Logarithms. Aside from the formulae, there are some fascinating facts about Napier, who together with most of his Jacobean fellows, was a wizard.

    I’m thinking about $65.

  • Reserve one for me!!!!!!!!!! Actually if you could even get the tray to 2″—–

    Goodness! Fantastic to see a sale and negotiation in play!

    • Pat says:

      I know: some heavy dealing, huh? I’m also talking to Sonia about a fully boxed version that doesn’t necessarily have to be 1/12th”. Who knew people would have an interest in this? I’m as surprised as anybody.

  • I agree-I’ll take 2 1/8 happily. I guess I was just a nerdy kid with a creative father but I still love the silly thing.
