    Cheap (a few dollars) or expensive ( bamboo, $50 plus)? A few scales or many? In high school, I 
had a cheap one; in service, I used a circular slide rule.
    There was also a Chemistry and Physics Handbook published every few years with many tables in 
it including Integral equations. All the tables used in math was also published separately. One 
table contained multiples of pi to 20 decimal places. (Very useful for high school trig classes! )
