I still have mine.

And, I still have the Basic computer program I wrote to put the same correlations into my first personal computer. (The equations were published by NRA in the "Handloading" book by William C. Davis.) But, Basic programs stopped working when Windows XP was replaced by Vista.

Of course, the cardboard Powley slide rule still works, even when the power company can't fix the grid and my generator runs out of gas. So, I don't think I'll bother to put it in the recycle bin just yet.

There is a website with the Powley computer online using javascript.

I think there is a Powley spreadsheet around somewhere too.

SL1, would it be possible for me to get that program? That would be great if I could still get it. I didn't know there was a program for it because I'm still using Windows XP.

You would also need the Basic.exe program and probably the help file.

I have all of them, but would need to dig them out.

The programs that I wrote were for ME, so they don't have any documentation or very clear instructions.

If you want them, PM me with an e-mail address. I can't promise promptness, but I will get around to finding them and sending them to you when I get finished with my vacation prep and the vacation itself.
