|steveo||The unit is a pantograph. By placing the "adjusting" connectors in the proper positions stamped on the unit (or reading the destructions) the unit can be used to either 1) enlarge or 2) reduce the size of an original "pattern". Depending which point of unit contains the trace point (follower) and which point contains the pencil point, the result will either be a reduced or enlarged resulting new "pattern". Of course today, we just scan the original, insert into our handy dandy cad software, and plot it to the scale needed as a "government job" at work. Ah yes, remember doing it the hard way with one of these units in the 50's and 60's !!!!!!!!|

Ed, you keep coming up with these things that I have, and have never used. I have one in the basement over the heat duct. Keep em coming tho. I'll let someone else answer this one. Maybe someone who hasen't been a winner yet. |

"What is it?" #72
Another easy one.
Tell us about this tool. I want detail of how to use it to do two operations. For some of you this will be a big task for other it will be a smaller task but to get to be the winner and to get the 100 points you have to answer correctly and mention the two operations I am thinking about...... hints abound so get busy with your answers. Oh yes you also have to be the first one to do it correctly.
