Welcome to a very brief Tool of the Month blog post, this month I'll take a quick look at mechanical pencils!
The mechanical pencil was developed to aid technical drawing. Thought to have been Invented in the 18th century and becoming more widespread in the 19th & 20th centuries.
The advantage of a mechanical pencil using fixed diameter pencil leads over a standard pencil is that the tip is always the same diameter, this makes marking out and technical drawings far more consistent and repeatable therefore boosting accuracy.
That's all for May, this month has been extremely hectic as i have been preparing to get married!
