Dietzgen 1748P  
Written by Accutron on 2017-07-03  

The Dietzgen 1748P is a compact 8" 'Maniphase' slide rule, derived from a traditional Mannheim simplex slide rule with the addition of K, C and CI scales. The 1748P also has a reversible slide with S, L and T scales on its reverse, inch and metric rulers along the top and bottom edges of the stator, and a printed conversion table affixed to the stator's reverse. Like other Dietzgen slide rules of this style, the 1748P has a mahogany body laminated with engraved celluloid faces, and features Dietzgen's proprietary 'frameless' glass cursor which can be removed from the stator without the use of tools.

Available Scales: K A [B CI C] [S L T] D
