 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. ^_^

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
