Expand Your Circles With The Pocket Compass XL !

A traditional divider-style two-legged compass leaves a lot to be desired in a woodworking shop. The slightest nudge can change the setting. The pivot point is approaching the stock at an angle, so it likes to skate out of position. And, they’re just plain awkward to carry around (not to mention potentially painful!)

Our product developers looked at this problem and decided to build a compact compass that you could safely carry in your pocket and depend on to layout accurate curves thus the Pocket Compass XL (from 2” to 21”).

Here’s how it works. Adjust the two-piece body so that your desired measurement is either in the directly indexed pencil hole or the “+2” or “+3” holes. For example, if you adjust it to the 2” diameter mark, you can draw a 2” circle, a 4” circle or a 5” circle (or even larger on the XL model). The stainless-steel pivot point is safely stored in the end of the beam. Take it out, put it through the hole in the opposite end, locate it at your axis point, drop a pencil through the correct hole and draw your arc..

You’ll find repositioning your hands and getting back on line to complete the arc to be much easier and more accurate than doing the same thing with a divider compass or a typical beam compass, because the whole thing is lying flat on your workpiece. Gravity is working with you instead of against you.

We machine the Pocket Compass XL using 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 the scales in both Imperial and Metric measurements.

Like all our OneTIME Tools, Woodpeckers Pocket Compass XL is only made to order. The order deadline is August 27, 2018. Once orders are filled, it will be retired from our product line. Delivery is scheduled for November, 2018.

The Pocket Compass XL is manufactured in Woodpeckers' Strongsville, Ohio factory, just south of Cleveland. Proudly Made in the USA!
What are our OneTIME Tools? They’re the tools that our partners at Woodpeckers plan to run once. Often these are tools we ourselves would like but can’t put in full production. The process is simple; they build a couple, take some pictures and open a 10-20 day window for others to jump on the production run. Once they know how many to make, they get them done and move on to something else.

By buying a OneTIME Tool, you will own a limited run precisely machined tool that will make you the envy of all your woodworking friends, and you have a tool that will be used for generations. These tools are proudly made in the USA.
