    I would still go with my original advice. Get the newer, free, software. It would be much easier for us to help you out. Not many here have even seen R13.
    Drafting is a breeze.

    Thinking back pretty sure R13 supported windows printer drivers, you have not mentioned what operating system but I guess XP, you will need to download say the correct Cutepdf driver and then as already suggested configure cutepdf as a printer then as part of the plot configuration you should be able to set up pen thickness, another method maybe download the Autocad free viewer "Trueview" and plot pdf from that.

    Just went looking for the install manual I have full set disks etc one but I think its in that cupboard that you open and throw stuff on top of the pile.

    R13 was based around pen plotters, so even for raster printers such as laser or electrostatic printers, which do not have physical pens, you plotted various line widths by assigning a pen width to a colour.

    I downloaded Draftsight, opened and saved my ACAD files as .pdf files in C size drawings. Was very easy. Next I'll see how they print at my local print shop. Did notice that I have the option of increasing line weights now. Thanks Rob and all for your help.

    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.

    You could also give DWG TrueView a try for plotting to PDF, it is free from Autodesk.
