Do all of you guys have one or something similar?
I always used an Ohaus triple beam balance and wheat straw papers
Is this what you're referring to? If so I usually don't need one because I'm normally working from my own plans and don't have to do take-offs from other plans. The time I could have really used it was when I was in the process of converting my original blueprints to CAD. Would have made the whole process a lot quicker but it just wasn't in the budget at the time.
Sorry I thought it was common tool for the industry.
Jest funnin' you. I got an old mechanical one, but usually don't need it for residential installs. Easier to keep an extra roll or two of poly on hand.
I use mine all the time. Do alot of bidding for architects that provide to scale plans. I then use it to design the irrigation to the plan. Its a great and affordable tool
He's probably got a slide rule when pencil and paper becomes to labor intensive too
And, actually, I like my 12" scale even for C scale stuff. I've used the digital pens like Hayes's picture, but I like my scaled straight edge. But, hey, I would still be using Dos and that slide rule if they would let me! My calculator is a #2 pencil and scratch paper for most things. This computer just makes typing easier because my script isn't fit for a professional look.
