Featured Weights (Spline)
Bronze Spline Weights for use by yacht designers, boatbuilders, and design students. These classic design tools are used in conjunction with long, flexible battens or 'splines' to draw fair curves while drawing a boat's lines and during the lofting process. They are a practical tool for boat and ship builders, as generating full size plans for construction often requires ducks and battens on the lofting floor. These are cast in Edson's New England foundry and feature a padded felt bottom and the traditional duck or whale design. They have side indents for easy handling, as well as a slightly raised 'tail' for lifting and repositioning.
