Recognizing parts in a manual drafting set.
« on: June 09, 2016, 11:54:39 AM »
Hi everyone.

This question may be more for old school manual drafters.

I recently acquired a Wild Heerbrugg drafting set, RZ31. There's a couple of pieces in there and I'm not sure what they do. I have attached a photo.

One part is a black metal tube, ribbed except at the ends, where it is open and also has small slits.

The other is a circular metal ring with 3 small screws and a glass or acrylic see through centre.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

The ribbed cylinder us a pen handle, used for holding a variable width nib for dipping in an inkwell The slots allow for a tight interference fit. The washer looking object I am unsure of. Perhaps a spacer from around a compass extension piece: guessing here.
