Woodpeckers Pocket Compass works similarly to a traditional beam compass, except, the beam of the Pocket Compass rests on the surface of your work. That means you’re not trying to balance the whole tool on two sharp points. Simply adjust the two-piece body to your desired measurement, remove the stainless-steel pivot pin from its storage port, spot it into your axis point, drop a pencil through the correct hole and draw your arc.
Since the tool is lying flat on your work, repositioning your hands and getting back on line to complete the arc couldn’t be easier or more accurate. Gravity is working with you instead of against you.
We carefully machine the Pocket Compass on our state-of-the-art CNC mills, then anodize the surface in our familiar “Woodpecker Red” color. The anodizing isn’t just for looks. It protects the surface from corrosion and wear. Finally, we laser engrave both inch and metric graduations to an accuracy of ±.004" total accumulated error over the length of the scales.
The Pocket Compass and Pocket Compass XL are available separately. But, if you want them both, order the set. You’ll save a few bucks and get one of our American-made, heavy-duty 0.9mm mechanical pencils and a custom fit storage case.
Like all our OneTIME Tools®, Woodpeckers Pocket Compass and Pocket Compass XL are only made to order, precisely machined and carefully inspected in our Strongsville, Ohio factory (just south of Cleveland). The deadline to order yours is Monday, March 30, 2020. Once orders are filled, they will be retired from our product line. Delivery is scheduled for July 2020.
