I remember a big paperback book with every sort of graph paper. The intent was that you copied them as needed. Today I can make whatever's needed in CAD. OK, I still have quite a lot of old K&E and other graph papers.

I do use a computer to make graphs.  Often.  But I still use my stock of KE paper from time to time.  Most often when balancing a lap top somewhere within arms reach of my test setup is difficult. Or dangerous to the laptop.  I have demonstrated more than once that having a lap top slip off of a surface to the floor is more expensive than the same event with a clipboard mounted sheet of paper and a pencil.

I ended up with a screen permanently mounted over the bench, and a desktop computer, for that exact reason!  - the desktop computer makes a great stand for soldering irons, so doesn't even waste space!  :D

Thank you for teaching this old sod about Reactance   Paper... Darn useful for a guy who has mild dyscalculia and loves pushing trons.
Would love to have a lifetime stack of 10 pads.

I decided to make the PDFs freely available for download, since I don't think I'll have time to commercially print these in the near future. Enjoy!

Whats up with these decade divisions? Wouldn't it make more sense, to divide them by E12 series?
Also, if you take the log of the E12 series, some beautiful things happen.

The graph papers are very nice, but I particularly enjoyed reading about the linear clock  :-+

I gather doing E12 divisions would make drawing lines for popular component values a little more convenient, but it would make getting information out (corner frequencies, impedance value at frequency) less convenient.

This has been an want of mine for a while: good graph paper pads, in designs useful for electronics and EE pen-and-paper design work

I bookmarked this long time ago, maybe talk to them ? https://incompetech.com/graphpaper/
