    Same here. Those things were the biggest mistake Brunning ever made. A company I worked for in 1972 tried one and sent it back after only three days.

    Would love a complete copy of an old poem titled A Draftsmans Lament. It went something like this...

    a draftsman bent accross his board
    Great ideas in his head were stored
    and as he rubbed his throbbing bean
    he thought how can I make this hard to machine?
    I'll put the holes that hold the cap
    Way down there where they are hard to tap
    and I'll put in a right angle there and watch those planners tear their hair.......

    can anyone hlp?

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    I think this is what you seek..




    "The Designer"

    The designer bent across his board
    With wonderful plans in his noggin stored,
    And said as he rubbed his throbbing bean:
    "How can I make this tough to machine?
    If this part here were only straight
    I'm sure the thing would work first rate,
    But 'twould be so easy to turn and bore...
    It never would make the machinists sore

    "I'd better put in a right angle there
    (Then watch those babies tear their hair!)
    And I'll put the holes that hold the cap
    Way down in here where they're hard to tap.

    "Now this piece won't work, I'll bet a buck,
    For it can't be held in a shoe or chuck;
    It can't be drilled and it can't be ground-
    In fact, the design is exceedingly sound."

    He looked again and cried, "At last!
    Success is mine! It can't even be cast!"

    I knew I was going to like it here. I also started my drafting career as a hand draftsman. On a funny note: I was working on the computer
    one day and one of the head architects was telling me (jokingly If that's an actual word.) how he could still survive without cad draftsmen.
    I told him that without us he was nothing but a hand job!

    That sounds like something that might only have been said a LONG time ago,
    maybe like Jman was talking about when 4MB of RAM was a lot!

    Pretty hard to imagine anybody who was sober at the time making such a claim nowadays.

    I would enjoy watching the race though!

    Somebody seriously said this to you in 2005? Wow, how naive can someone be. I would have taken that bet if I were you.
