  • Where to buy quality technical drawing tools?

    I recently purchased a Staedtler compass but it is malfunctioning. The mouth of the compass expands as I draw and put very gentle pressure on it. Also, it automatically opens 1-5 mm right after setting the radius size. So basically it is useless.

    Where should I go and buy a good quality compass for drafting and technical drawing? I checked staples (awful selection both online and in the store) and Michaels (a bit better but still not good).

    This is what I'm looking for at the moment

    Thanks for your help.

    Keep looking for drafting supplies. Supplies may be scarcer in the computer age but should still be available. Bussybee sold me a nice sturdy compass. Leevalley should have some.

      Have a look at Wallack's Art Supplies. They were always a reliable supplier of decent products.
