Unlike many of lifetime friends, I still have a lot of engineering kits, such as compass, circle degree transport, triangles, and, of course, ruler, and others, because I use them in drawing some of the projects I would like to do. Sometimes I like to make them by myself, and somewhat, improve them when it’s possible. Years ago, I needed a large-scale compass that was not available for sale. and decided to design and produce it on my own. This compass is made of wood and is suitable for drawing a circle with a diameter of more than 50 c.m. It has hidden teeth at the legs meeting allow the legs to be evenly opened when moving one of them.

Great job Sam,

Making your own tools is really gratifing,

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
