A gallery of clickable simulated slide rules.

This one is complete with a numeric readout of the cursor position! It's really useful if you're unfamiliar with reading the various scales. Here is the link to the original web page for this simulator, as well as Stefan's Historical Computing Devices.
If you're not sure about how to use a slide rule, take a look at Slide Rule Calculations by Example. It's a self-guided demo that demonstrates different calculations by simple examples. Also included is How to Use Your Pickett Slide Rule, a simple 4 page manual (scanned in 4 images).
This package allows you to run Derek's Virtual Slide Rule Gallery self-contained on any computer, without an internet connection. It's perfect for putting on a USB drive. This web page has been edited to make it a bit more modern in appearance, to remove the user comments and external links (except the Aristo 970 one which I have also made part of this package), and text and style changes as appropriate. I also added Brian Bartholomew's Virtual Slide Rules and slide calculators as of February 2016. All of the virtual rule pages have been made identical in style, and they now share a single style sheet and a single copy of the (modified and updated) wz-dragdrop script. If you want to see the original page and the stuff that is there, you do need to be connected to the net, then just go to Derek's original site. It should be noted that the virtual slide rules were made possible by Walter Zorn's Drag and Drop for Images and Layers.
