Pantograph for drawing
gift for my father
This project can be seen in the pantograph blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/38214
Ever since child (son of a architect) I have been fascinated by drawing gear, and remember having seen one of these in a magazine as a boy.
So when I a couple of years back ran into this magazine, I had to buy it.
Then I checked on E-bay and found a old Pantograph in France.
My father passed one day and was fascinated by this old drawing tool, so I decided to make him one.
1. My go on the pantograph, on top of the old box.
2. Making strips.
4. Drilling all the holes.
5. Making metal parts.
6. Old and new.
Hope this will inspire, I had a great time making it.
