Build it yourself with help from this paper plan!
Here's a great use for those prized wood scraps you stashed away for just the right project. This Shop Compass incorporates an ingenious clamping system that holds a standard pencil (hexagonal or round) and a hardened pivot point, made from a nail set. Fit your tool with two points, and use it to scribe lines on sheet metal or other hard surfaces. Legs measure approximately 11in. long.
This plan was built and proven in the WOOD magazine shop by its editors and master craftsmen.
