There's no doubt that a compass is often the best tool for drawing arcs and circles. But the traditional compass with its sharp, pointy ends isn't always the best tool to keep in your shop apron let alone your pants pocket.
Now there's an alternative.
Introducing Woodpeckers new Pocket Compass.
This full-featured tool is not much bigger than a cigarette lighter but it is fast, accurate and stores easily where a traditional compass won't.
The Pocket Compass features a built-in ruler to speed set-up and even has a self-contained stainless steel pivot point. These features and the tool's innovative design make it simple to draw precise arcs and circles from one inch up to 6-1/2” in diameter.
The main body of the Pocket Compass consists of two telescoping, precision-machined aluminum parts: one with a pivot hole and engraved inch and metric scales, the other with pencil holes. Simply telescope the parts until the alignment mark matches the desired diameter, tighten the knob and you're ready to go. With the pivot pin on your center mark, drop any sharp wooden or mechanical pencil or scribe into the first tapered hole to draw your circle. Want a circle two or three inches bigger? No problem. Move the pencil to the hole marked “+2” or “+3”.
It's that easy. So if you're looking for a simple tool that's convenient as well as capable, consider Woodpeckers new Pocket Compass.
