Hello everyone,

A slide rule colleague poses the following question:

I have a question for our readers, unless of course there is already an answer, but so far I have been unable to find one!

What is the collective noun for slide rules? I quite like a "clutch of slide rules" as they are tactile beasts, or perhaps a "scale of slide rules". Please enlighten me if one already exists, or suggestions please, we could have some fun with this one!

A Very Happy Easter,
