Thanks for sharing Conductor!


It looks like many, if not all, the tools were hand drawn. That's amazing. I can't imagine myself drawing detailed depictions tools (or anything really) all day. Nowadays we have super high res photography that makes hand tools look amazing. Not sure if your familiar with Lie-Neilson toolworks but they have a catalog of hand tools that could be used as postcards, really nice stuff. 


It's cool to see how things were done back in the day. To me, it feels like everyone was hand made and hard to do. Now, everything is digital. Funny story, I showed the owner of the sign shop I work for a video on YouTube. It was some guy making a hand made sign for John Mayer. I was blown away by how intricate and detailed the sign turned out. The owner just looked at me and said "That's just how we did thing's back in the day, what's so special about that?". I had to laugh because it's so true.
