Drafting Template, Field Template Rules! (Metric)

Write a Review

Introducing the The Field Template™ Rules! English Metric Stencil, the template used ’round the metric world. This template made it’s debut at the 2010 LDI convention in Las Vegas, and it was marvelous!

  • First, Shelley selected 32 of today’s latest symbols: ETC, Strand, Selecon, Robert Juliat, and Reich & Vogel, along with generic striplights and moving lights. He sorted them into appropriate categories, to allow for easier recognition.
  • Then he added a collection of symbols not found on any other template! LED designations, scrollers, tophats and halfhats, dimming shutters, concentric rings, HMI indicators, and a host of circles, rectangles, squares, and triangles.
  • Next, Shelley arranged the collection of symbols onto his patented Pro•Grid System. The pre-spaced distance between symbols is 50 centimeters, while the surrounding grid is based on 10 centimeter increments. This means symbols can be drawn at any measured distance between each other without the use of a scale.
  • As usual, he also aligned the symbols, so that the thick horizontal line indicates a batten, the hang point for each instrument.
  • Adjacent to each symbol’s label, Shelley’s provided the generic beam spread, the hanging weight [kilos], and metric cut color size for that instrument type, to allow for easy reference.
  • Next, he fit the symbols into a plastic page that’s just a little taller than an A4 piece of paper, and added four holes on the left-hand side—the template can be snapped into a two-ring or four-ring notebook. And the top of the template sticks up above the rest of the A4 paper. Not only can you find the template quick, it acts like a tab!
  • Finally, Shelley designed the template so that the 32 symbols are repeated in TWO SCALES—1:25 and 1:50 .

And each scale is printed on each side of the template. For that matter, a 1/2” and 1/4” scale is printed across the bottom of the template as well.

No scale ruler - a complete package of cutout symbols in two scales - specific information about each symbol printed right on the stencil. All this seamlessly combined into a single plastic appliance.

The Field Template Rules! English Metric Stencil. Another addition to the Field Template drafting family known as Referance Manuals in Plastic, allowing accurate light plots to be drafted cleaner, faster, and smarter - on a global scale.

Same Day Shipping Cutoff time

Online orders received by noon Eastern time typically ship the same day. If your delivery due date is critical please note your due date in the order messages at checkout, and then contact us.

Why Noon? Well, while we stock quite a few items in our warehouse, many items we have dropshipped by our vendors. They need time to process the order, so to ensure that we can get the order to the vendor and give them enough time to ship it out the same day, we need to get the order to them as early as possible in the day.

Shipping Rating

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight and dimension based, as this is the method that FedEx and UPS use to rate the package's cost to ship.

We understand things happen and items occasionally need to be returned. To make things as hassle-free as possible, we have dedicated pages about our Returns Policy (what’s eligible to be returned) and our Return Process (how to go about returning eligible items)
