I should have mentioned that there are several Dietzgen drafting sets

I think I can surmise Ed's purpose. My high school drafting set
has been robbed of dividers for for laying out and measuring purposes

Do they still teach pencil and ink drafting in school? Likely not.
I found that entry level machinists in some places are not taught how
to sharpen drills.
