Having enough of my small plastic drafting compass, I looked around to buy a large and heavy one. I soon found out price tags to take the decision to make my own.
I started the build with two free hardwood paint stirring sticks (who doesn’t have these around in the shop!). Two small MDF scraps are used as pin (screw) and pencil holders as well as few bolts, wing-nuts and washers. The pencil holder block is split so tightening the wing-nut locks the pencil down. I added compression washers (shown) to firmly tighten the arms.
Hope you’ll like it !
