Might try your local library for old drafting textbooks. Libraries seem
to abound in out-of-date books...
Since cad became the rage, no one is writing, much less selling
drafting books. Too bad. It's much faster to learn to draft than to
You'll need a minium of equipment to start: small drafting board,
t-square, couple of triangles, scaling rule (to draw to some scale, say
1/4 or 1/8), compass, drafting pencil, sharpener, eraser.
No need for fancy, expensive drafting sets just to start.
I'd try to find books that had lessons in them to get started.
Hope this helps.
