.....This 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 pen holder 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.
