Diskussion:Washington-Betonrechner FER H-39

Hello, Ferrero/Sabatini relationship in not completely clear. Some Fer slide rules seems clearly "sons" of Washington slide rules.

Pastore in is  book describes:

See also Patent:IT354168 and Patent:IT348024, released in the same year. Patent reported on slide rule (Brev. It. 1680) is very early. I suppose near 1910 and i had not (until now) the possibility to explore patents of these years. :-(

I'm quite sure that Ferrero produced last versions of Sabatini rules, but i seen on eBay a rule labeled Sabatini (not Ferrero). It was very similar to  http://www.lombardiabeniculturali.it/scienza-tecnologia/schede/ST120-00195/ Celli 11:12, 25. Ago 2011 (CEST)

I suppose to have now an almost-complete framework for Washington-Betonrechner history.

  1. First Sabatini device was patented in 1925 (Patent:IT236298). In Patent:GB265752 you can see the GB registration (1927) of original Italian patent. It had two series of concentric rings linked troughs gears. This model is very rare, i know just two specimens: one in Franco Soresini's collection, one  here. The second one has serial number 227.
  2. After few years, Sabatini patented a  new calculator, who is scarce, but not so rare. Related patents are Patent:IT272159 and Patent:GB331819. Now all rings are concentric. Both machines (first and second type) was produced directly by Sabatini himself.
  3. Finally, i suppose after WW2, the Ferrero company acquired patents and produced a "restyled" and "compact" version, the Fer H-39N. I suppose that the label "Brev. Ital. N.1680" refers to a "Brevetto italiano di modello" a sort of "registered model", not to a "brevetto d'invenzione"(= patent) Celli 12:14, 2. Apr 2012 (CEST)
