    Comments about Rotape Beam Compass :

    Using it for marking out big round doors for my Camping Yurts. I would have given this 6 out of 5 :-) if there was a handy pencil lead and pin holder built into the housing so everything is kept together rather than perhaps loosing these little part as it must be stored separately. It's very good though.

    Comments about Rotape Beam Compass :

    I used this to mark off the placement of flourescent lights on my shop ceiling. I've tried many ways to do this by myself. This was the best so far. I own many different compass type tools and this one is a keeper.
