Tacro Inc. Drafting Set Germany
- Source: GoAntiques
This is a nice mid-1900's era. draftman's instrument (divider) set. The case is marked "MADE IN GERMANY 213" on the exterior flaps of the tri-fold case, and most of the instrumnents inside the case are marked in very small lettering "TACRO INC. GERMANY", some are marked "GERMANY". This is quite a large set with several pins and attachments, extra points and lead. The instruments all are in good+ to very good condition, nicely made, with a minor wear on the chrome plating. The plating on these is not as brilliant as some I've seen, but the machine work and design of the tools is among the best, very well made. The biggest divider is 6" long overall. The case is 4.5" x 9.5" long. The leather like cover/velvet lined case is in good condition with very little wear on the outside, nice looking, in very good overall condition. We note that a past owner marked his name in ink on the inside cover flap. A nice clean quality made complete set! All appear original to the set, all are in very good working order!
