AlumiDrafter Alumicolor

Invented by a practicing architect, this multi-use tool gives the user all the advantages of a traditional triangular scale in addition to many other features, while solving the portability problem of its bulkier counterpart.

Triangular Drafting Scales Alumicolor

Made from the highest quality aluminum for ultra smooth edges and a solid feel without flexibility. The anodized silver finish gives a satin-like feel, while the photo anodized calibrations are resistant to cleaners and will not rub off. Imperial Architect Scale calibrations are inches to 16ths, (1/8", 1/4"), (1/2", 1"), (3/4", 3/8"), (3", 1-1/2") and (3/32", 3/16"). Imperial Engineer Scale calibrations are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 parts per inch. Metric Architect Scale calibrations are 1:100, 1:200, 1:250, 1:300, 1:400, 1:500. Metric Engineer Scale calibrations are 1:1, 1:2, 1:5, 1:10, 1:20, 1:50. The hollow scales feature the same calibrations as the solid scales but are light-weight. The color-coded scales are solid and have a different color stripe on each side, making it easy to find the scale you want.
