I'm pretty sure I still have my flow chart diagramming stencil in
drawer if I got ambitious enough to go looking for it. It's a plastic
ruler with cut-outs for all of the different shapes (boxes, curves,
etc.) that you put on a flow chart diagram which you can trace off of
the ruler instead of having to draw them by hand.
I've still got one of them, too. I don't know what they made it out of,
but even after twenty years it still pongs like it was dipped in vomit.
Thanks to that, I rarely used it. And it was generally quicker just to
sketch by had without fiddling with the stencil.
I never was much of an artist....
Me either, but I still draw most of my things free hand (generally
electronics, these days), and put up with the wavy lines and
non-grid-aligned layout. Ahh the fun of making circuit boards that ICs
had to go into, hand drawn using a Dalo pen, with the holes drilled
using a hand drill... Hmm, it doesn't quite fit...
