I was a classicly trained draftsman in high school/early 20's days. I worked for architects, machinists, whatever
needed drawn up and did it old school - ink on mylar, usually faster than the guys using lead.
CAD wiped that skill obsolete pretty darn fast, but I miss it to this day and still have a lot of my old tools of the trade.
My dad started in the late 50's. He's got ink Koh-I-Noor stuff, but it's messy.
But this stuff displayed better and was all K&E. There's a K&E slide rule in there too.
Check out this old drafting magazine. Huge rooms, tons of draftsman, white shirts, ties, pocket protectors... no women.
