guide screw thread is J4 inch pitch. If a wheel of 55 teeth is
placed on the mandrel, what wheel must be placed on the guide screw
to cut the abovementioned thread; also what other pair of wheels
may be used alternately if necessary? In a problem of this kind all
that is necessary is to find the ratio or proportion existing
between the pitch of the guide screw and the pitch required. It
will be seen that the decimal equivalent of 516 equals.3125 and the
decimal equivalent of Yi equals.5. Therefore, set 3,125 on A to 5
on B, and read over 55 on A 88 on B as the required number of teeth
for the wheel on the lead screw. With the slide set at the above
ratio anv other pair of wheels which will produce the same results
may be found simplv by moving the runner back and forth such as we
find 15 25 90 would suffice. 24 40 144 Multiplication and Division.
The ordinary arithmetical processes are performed on this rule in
exactly the same way that they are on the Mannheim rule. As an
example of multiplication, suppose it is required to multiply 3.7
by 1.9. The 1 on the left hand end of the C scale is placed
opposite the 3.7 on the D scale. The product 7.03 is then read on
the D opposite 1.9 on the C scale. Division is the exact reverse of
multiplication. Thus to divide 7.03 by 1.9, we place 1.9 on the C
scale opposite 7.03 on the D scale and read the the A scale
directly above 3 on the D scale and 3, the square root of 9,
appears on the D scale directly below 9 on the A scale. Cubes and
Cube-roots. As an example of finding the cube of a given number let
us proceed to find the cub6 of 3. Place the index of the C scale
opposite 3 on the D scale. Then read 27, the cube of 3, on the A
scale opposite 3 on the B scale. To find the...
