 I was taught in High School a certain way and still do it that way, with a old drafting table and arm that I restored and am proud to own. My brother inlaw retired as a draftsman and even he couldn't think of a reason for me as mostly a hobbyist to change.

I have one of those boards and drafting machines I purchased from the school at which I taught, when they went to all autocad. It's in the shop and swings down from the ceiling. Sadly, I use Sketchup for almost everything, now.

We only had one like that in my Jr. High & Freshman drafting class. It was for special projects and teacher use only. All the students had Post tables with T-squares. We had to furnish our own 45/90o and 30-60-90o tri-angles, a protractor, french curve & architect & engineering 3 sided scale rules and drafting set & leads. I think my drafting set & retractable pencils were Dietzen (sp?).

 

I still have the tri-angles, french curve and my drafting board & t-square. Once of my brothers used the drafting set...Too many moves over the years and it became lost.

Nice setup.   I wasn't allowed to take drafting, but that didn't stop me when it was time to draw up the plans for my house.   It's still my copy on file in the county. ^_^
