is Vern's Leroy Board, a less expensive board, he purchased around 1960.
Using a Pen holder, three sizes of lettering were produced with india ink
on vellum where maps were being drawn, also in ink. Two parts of the
set lightly on this board being held in your right hand. The
heel, larger pin of pen holder, slides the long wide groove while the steel
point of holder is moved around the letter form in the board. Using no
down pressure, the actual pen places ink on the paper, forming the letter
required, squarely, not at a angle as original on board.
