Transcript 16 A. W. FABER'S MANUFACTORY ESTABLISHED 1761. New A. W. FABER'S Polygrade Lead Pencils, With Broad Leads. For technical and machine drawing the advantages of the lead pencils with broad leads are these : that they can be more readily pointed; that the points are stronger and finer than those obtained from round, square or hexagonal leads; and that, in consequence of the chisel-like form, the points are more durable and need less frequently be renewed. The pencils have this further advantage that, in line drawing, the lead can be applied directly to the ruler, with increased steadiness and precision of manipulation. No. Packed 1 dozen in a box.
