|Keuffel & Esser (K&E)||Faber-Castell||Sun Hemmi||Pickett|

This is a collection of three types of slide rule records: Archives, Cross References, and Lists from various sources on the internet.
|•Archive:||A complete list with a large amount of data with photos for each slide rule.|
|• Cross Reference:||A complete list with a large amount of data for each slide rule but no photos.|
|• List:||A complete list with a limited amount of data for each rule.|
Complete means the record contains all known rules of that maker, as obtained from makers' catalogs by diligent researchers.
