still have my first one around somewhere...couldn't afford the hi-falutin plastic...only had the boxwood one.   a much nicer plastic one i had was lost at school i think as all that stuff had to be shoved under one arm and carried around all day as no lockers and no backpacks.   like that electric eraser....we had those at work.

 

think i had a couple of those metal erasure screens around somewhere, too.

Oh, and the real nerds had a pocket protector with 3 pens and 4 pencils and wore their slide rule on their waist.

I remember when pocket protectors for mechanics were so popular I had a dozen from the tool guys in my drawer.  As I use them they wear out.  Now I have to order them and it is very rare to see one on a tool truck, or someone that wears one.  Why I have no idea.  I have a pen, 3 types of pocket screwdrivers, a magnet and a black marker.
