Perfect for use by students or professionals, the Alvin 6" Bow Compass is an instrument of superior quality. It has a fast center wheel adjustment, and a capped spindle to prevent over-extension. The interchangeable pencil and divider parts make it extremely versatile.
The compass is made of high-tech silver-toned upper legs and black fiberglass lower legs. It makes circles from .125" to 9.5" in diameter. The compass comes in a resealable, see-through package.

Pleased to have a new compass. Kids pinched my last one. Had it since 1955. Love the new one though. On the board doing engineering work all my life. Compass is indispensable.

Brands make a difference
from Costa Rica
Had bought one for double the price but wasn't really satisfied, then decided that it might be the tool that was wrong, not my line, and this Alvin compass and tracing pen are awesome. My lines are thin and perfect now. So it wasn't me making bad lines, it was the tool.
