I made this beam compass while in the middle of another project and discovered the little metal compass I had wasn’t going to be big enough for my needs. This one is made out of some scrap red oak i had and is 2’ long… that should be large enough.
The locking mechanism works great on the pencil, but it’s not quite tight enough on the center point. I’m playing with a few ideas to replace the current setup, so any suggestions are always appreciated!
