Drafting and Drawing Tools

You can’t build what you can’t draw

These tools are definitely not a place to skimp on. That said, there are a lot of cheap tools out there that I prefer over expensive ones. For example, drafting pencils. See below for a good list of items that won’t break the bank, but are accurate and durable.

The thing I like about this drawing compass set is that it will take a mechanical pencil as well as dedicated pencil leads.
