    Exclamation

    I draw alot of cut-sheets and I'm looking for this tool. I have seen it many times but never aquired it for myself because I used to be paid to draw. But now I find it a necessity. It will draw most fittings, even canvas connections. Anyone ever seen or heard of where to find this tool? Pics or websites are a must!

    Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance

    "There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey. It's unwise to pay too little.
    When you pay too much, you lose a little money -- that is all. When you pay too little, you may lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.

    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot -- it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better."

    When I was making duct work I always just made my own templates for 90* and 45* ells for large jobs. Just make one side of the largest ell that you are going to need and notch back 1" down the sides. A scratch compass and a steel rule for connecting the lines and your done. Of course I did this until we got hold of a plazma duct machine, then there was no use for the templates anymore.

    I don't miss making sheet metal fittings but it did make my day fly by and I was always whiped out at the end of the day. The worse days were the sub 30* temps in the shop. It would take half the day before the metal would warm enough to be comfortable working with it.
