    De Havilland Aircraft Drawing Office Handbook

    Hi all.

    I'm slowly working away on uploading all pubs for our airworthy restoration of Vampire FB.9 R1382.
    http://vhjet.com/home/publications/

    Have just uploaded a DH DO handbook that may be of interest to other DH restorers and fans...

    Note also I have some links to other websites with related pubs. If you have any other relevant links that you want to point out, please let me know.

    Cheers.

      Thanks from me too - very interesting to know that DH also used the lofting on sheet metal plates & litho process - I worked in the Vickers Weybridge Mould Loft in 1959/60 where they used a similar system, but were gradually moving over to plastic film & a photo print process for detail parts & some assembly drawings during 1960.

        Wow!

        That is a gold mine of useful information you have on your site. So nice of you to allow free access to it.

        Thank you.

            Thanks for the feedback. : - )
            When I started at Hawker de Havilland at Bankstown in 1991 the tooling group were still using the litho process to print from mylars to make templates. When the place was closed down in 2013, the 'lofting table' as we called it, was still there and I was just thinking that it would be wonderful if somebody actually wanted it AND had the means etc. I wanted it but it was too big for me! I don't know what happened to it. There were a number of disposal auctions during the shut-down period and I only went to one of them.
