    Ruling pens could also double as roach clips as well.

    Anyone here, besides me, still have a carousel? And I'm not talking about the one that you see at an amusement park.

    Re: surveying. I have a K&E (Keuffel & Esser) field book (loose leaf no less) with a plastic, red/white, rectangular "target" taped to the front cover. Inside is a plastic sheet with distances from side stakes for cross-sectioning on one side and trigonometric formulae and reduction to horizontal diagrams/explanations on the other.

    No, but I had a transitman throw a sight pole (also known as a range pole) at me once (just for fun). That red/white javelin arcing through the air sure got my attention!

    I agree, I am a young drafter at 21, but not only did I learn "board drafting" but used all the tools in it. The only tool that I did not use in college that I did get to use in highschool was a blueprint machine. I am now convinced that is where the term "smell of success" was coined lol

    Wow. Just for fun?

    The guy on the tripod threw his walkie talkie at me because he thought I wasn't responding to the signals. We were near Andrews AFB and their transmitter tower completely destroyed any signal he might have been sending. After a brief discussion about why we learned hand signals and where walkie talkies might be inserted, and how uncomfortable he would be driving back to the office with it inserted in same, we got back down to business.

    Take a stroll over to the Chat forum. I started a new thread re: surveying.

    You know when you're an old draftsman when...

    you think, "What I really need for this is drafting tape," and you find out nobody sells it any more.

    That's funny. I'd pretty much forgotten about that. I used drafting dots a lot. Maybe painter's tape would work?
