Before the days of CAD (computer aided design), complex, detailed drawing was done with rulers and pencils...and such precision drawing also required precision erasing.
That's where this tool - the Erasing Shield - comes in. Even if you are not an architect or designer you may find other uses for it, such as erasing canceled appointments from a planner or stray marks from a notebook. It's also kind of fun to just doodle with it.
To use, simply place the shield on the paper, move the appropriate hole over the spot you want to erase, and rub into the hole with your favorite eraser without fear of eliminating anything you want to keep.
Measures 3.625" x 2.375" x .005" thick - slightly larger than a business card, and about the same thickness as a sheet of 20 lb paper, but stiffer. Slide it into a credit card slot or use it as a book mark to keep it handy.
Made in Taiwan.

Useful tool for drawing and journaling. Not much else to say other than "get one!" Also, get the black "Matomarukun" erasers as well, they beat everything I've ever used.

I used an eraser shield long ago when I worked as a draftswoman. It was fun to see this little tool is still available. I use it as an eraser shield and also to create dingbats for my journal. Fun!
