Model Numbers: Keuffel & Esser slide rule model numbers often have alphabetic prefixes and suffixes.  For example "N4081-3" indicates a "new" revsionof already existing model 4081-3.  These revisions usually amounted to nothing more than a re-arrangement of the scales; the physical sizesof models with and without the "N" are absolutely identical.  Any case or cursor that fits a model without the "N" will also fit the model with the "N."  The "N" was usually dropped after couple of years when people had gotten used to the new scale arrangement.
    The suffix indicated what kind of case the rule came in.  4081-3S (and N4081-3S) came in a sewn leather case.  4081-3F came in an imitationleather fiber case.  So, ignore the alphabetic prefixes and suffixes when looking for parts for you slide rule.  If yourrule is marked "N4093-3F," just look for model 4093-3.
    The -1 or -3 or -5 in the model number does make a difference.  "-1" indicated a "five-inch" rule; "-3" a ten-inch rule and "-5" a 20-incher.  Twenty-inch rules usually--but not always--use slightly different cursors from the corresponding ten-inch versions.
