Check out my new toy:

Drafting Machine

I got the drafting table cheap a while ago off a listing on Craigslist and just last night got the drafting machine from a seller on eBay. The machine is pretty old (maybe it’s from the 70’s?), but everything seems to work just fine – the scales keep their relation to the table as you move the head around and they’re adjustable enough to easily get a 90° angle between them. The machine is a “right hand” version, but I’m gonna try to convert it to lefty by switching where it mounts on the table and changing the scales around a bit. We’ll see how it goes.

I’ve always enjoyed making pop-up greeting cards, and this setup makes it a breeze!
