  4. The draftsman and machine tools are delightfully rendered. Amusing paradox of the well crafted instrument without standard or reference, unusable except as a measure unto itself! Bridgeports do deserve deification. I might like one triangle or pica pole, if not too pricey, slow or cheesy! 😉 Can’t see the words on the pole…??

    • Mike
      Good to hear from you.
      Yes of course you can show some of the drawings.
      Just out of interest, what are you talking about?
      Hope all’s well.

  7. Love the GFC triangle. Especially in brass. Either way, I’d order one in a heartbeat. I’m a UX Architect and would love to have one on my desk. Lemme know when you get around to producing. 🙂
