Today I gathered together drafting supplies that have accumulated over the years, most of them many years ago. Several lead holders (one once belonged to my supervisor), paper cleaning powder and pad, long leads of different hardness, compasses and dividers (most missing parts) and a variety of sharpeners are all going to the landfill.
All this equipment is obsolete. I have moved them around over 40 years, putting value on them based on the symbolic representation of work performed.
I wanted to save a few things while filling a garbage bag.
but they’re all gone now.
