We join Fred Esker at his woodshop to capture and enjoy building a Spoon Mule. Fred teaches his hand carved spoon making skill set using a simple spoon mule which is created with primarily hand tools intermixed with some power tools. He is a member of the Geppetto's Carving Club at our Woodcraft store in Parkersburg, WV.
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.

easy to use and accurately measures radiuses. No need to break out the trammels and waste time measuring their point to point
Highly reccommended tool
Easy to use
Very useful in building my geodesic dome
Havn't got around to use it yet, but seems ok
Great tool to draw arcs
This replaces the bulky pieces of wood that I had in my shop to draw arcs or circles.
Excelent and compact product...

I would buy this handy product again.
I used it in measuring large radius cuts for doll furniture for my granddaughter. It worked as advertised and made my project much easier.
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.
Easy to use and saves a lot of time.
I use it to layout circular table tops, it saves time and money, I don't waste material by having to cut excess wood.
