Retro drafting stencil set
made in Germany 1960-1980s
Ah, who doesn’t remember using stencils and stencil pens to draft? Each letter meticulously printed, waiting for the ink to dry before moving onto the next so as not to smudge…it could take half a day to ink a drawing notation.
I picked this set up when at an engineering firm that was moving office and clearing out all their old junk. I guess enough time has now passed for me to look back on stencils with nostalgia [rather than abject loathing.]
This set comprises Staedtler, Rotring and Uno stencils, and comes with a Uno stencil pen [in its original box, with instructions.] For drafting tragics, nostalgics and youngsters who have never had to actually use the things, this set is for sale: $AUD135
