Abstract

Draftsmen, designers and engineers using CADAM (Trademark of Lockheed Corporation) have a need to refer to sketches, notes, plots and reference materials such as catalog sheets. Most CADAM users have a desk or reference table beside the CADAM scope to meet this purpose. A vertical, wall mounted, multi-slide display rack is illustrated in the figure to meet the same purpose. Inexpensive materials can be used for the grooved slide rails, such as ordinary 2 x 4 lumber. As many as six grooves, ยป" wide can be cut in the 4" face of a 2 x 4 resulting in six display board surfaces available. The display boards can be of light weight foamcore sheets available in 40" x 60" sizes. This size is adequate for mounting "E" size drawings (36 x 48) or larger.
