Tools of the Past

eraser-sheild

An erasing shield is a small metal plate which contains several small perforated holes of varying size and shape.  Its purpose is to allow the user to erase small specific areas of a drawing while shielding adjacent areas from being smudged or erased. Although this practical tool is still used today, it has all but been replaced by the evolution of technology and more efficient CAD software allowing the user to erase with the click of a button.
