A much larger selection of drafting and drawing items, including antiques, appears in the Total Catalog, Drafting Instruments section.

K+E Drafting Sets

K+E sold many fine drafting sets. Pictured here are several later models, made for K+E by the German firm, Haff. I have some used, but very useable, sets that range in price from $100 to $175, with the occasional very large set (not shown) for up to $300.

If you are interested, please click on Total Catalog at the top of the page, then go to the Drafting Instruments section and Search for K+E to see what is available.

Or, if you would like to see all of the drafting instruments avaiable, all types and makers, please use the Total Catalog button at the top of the page and then Browse in the Drafting Instruments section.
