Yep, I've still got a circular slide rule I bought in my high school bookstore. Cost me $2.50.

Pickett N902-T Simplex Trig.

What I really want is the one I saw in an engraving shop. Vernier positioning, about 3' long, and I think it was even temperature stabilized. High precision computing, for its time.

Yeah, it always brings back memories whenever I see the scene in the movie Apollo 13, where all the engineers pull out their slide rules and gather round to check the math of one of the Apollo astronauts.
