Useful $14 drafting set with a beautiful tin

I had a devil of a time finding leads for my compasses at a reasonable price. A pack costs two bucks PLUS shipping, which usually worked out to something absurd.

Beam compasses are quite useful if you need to construct large circles, or arcs. I use them for drafting custom patterns.

Yep, give me a cork-backed metal straightedge any day. Nothing else works as well for hand inking.

Let alone smacking people who try to take your stuff. It’s the flexibility that’s the key.
