Pentel Graph Gear 500 Drafting Pencil

Pentel Graphgear 500 and Graph Gear 1000

The Graph Gear 500 is an affordable drafting pencil that is a cheaper version of the Graph Gear 1000. The GG500 is notable because of it’s $5 price tag, knurled metal grip, and reliable design. It has a brass chuck for holding the lead, but uses a much simpler mechanism than the Graph Gear 1000.
