It’s actually a fairly good book. For others that are interested it can be read on Google books by searching for TM5-613. I would prefer a book I could hold in my hands. Good present!

Great find. Another you may be interested in is TM9-270, Common wood and metal repair. Just now going through this one myself to see what nuggets of information can be gleaned. Enjoy your book.

Looks like the Decitrig was a 1940’s slide rule:

K&E made the best slide rules! I have a Post knock-off of the DeciTrig, complete with the leather holster used to attach it to my belt, to complete the official nerd look.
