Does anyone here still hand draft their surveys?
I have met two hand drafters since I started doing this kind of work in 2001. Both worked in large shops with lots of legacy data and drawings, both could draft by computer as well and only one of them is still working.
I have not drawn any complete drawing this century.
Will still hand edit and add a few things before I will reprint.
A little over a year ago I brought the records of the firm to the east of me. The firm did good work but they drafted by hand. Hand drafting was one of the reasons after the owner passed that the sale of the firm did not go well. When I found out the records were going to the dumpster, I made an offer to the widow.
Haven't hand drafted since '94. I enjoyed doing the linework, but being a lefty, Leroying was a nightmare.
