Continuing our tinware collection and research into colonial tin smithing

I found this set of 'French curves' in an antique shop in Murwillumbah, Northern NSW. They belonged to an old local hoarder who was a tradesman, I was told. The box is handmade and fitted to accommodate the longer parabolas curve, every one is hand cut from old tin with the remaining paper template still glued in place. The next question is: does this go into tinsmith collection or my graphic tools collection?
