Welcome to dickblick
Ideal for artists, architects, engineers, educators, craftspeople, woodworkers, quilters, and pattern makers, the Koala Tools Ring Ruler 360 is the first size-adjustable, circular ruler. It makes drawing and measuring circles and arcs a much simpler and more efficient experience by eliminating the cumbersome pivot-point system.
Expanding and contracting the Ring Ruler 360 feels natural and ergonomic. It's quicker and safer than using a needle compass, and it also provides the more useful circular metrics of diameter and arc length/circumference.
One of the best features of the Ring Ruler 360 is its simplicity. This makes it a great learning tool for students — especially those too young to handle a compass.
The Koala Tools Ring Ruler 360 is offered in your choice of US standard and metric scales.

Comments about Koala Tools Ring Ruler 360:
Intrigued by the concept of tracing out circles and curves by hand, I had to try it out. So first off, it's really easy to use, but does take some practice in how it is held down with your 'non-drawing' hand. You should open up your hand and support it from at least 2 spread out points to keep it from moving, just as the guy in the video does. The circles it produces are not perfect, but I'm not an engineer and it suits my purposes just fine. I am an illustrator and it helps me to draw fast curved lines in ink. As many artists know, a slow line in ink can be squiggly or too fat, or just not show the streamlined lightness that you want to convey. In the same way that a straightedge will give you a perfectly toned line, well this ring ruler does that for circles and curves.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Does what it says, but not very well...
By Van D
from Asheville, NC
It can be used for what it shows in the company's instructional video, but the QUALITY of the circles it produces is mediocre. I found myself wondering how many takes had to be used, and how much practice the person had to go through to actually get straight, non-ovoid circles out of this tool. The plastic walls of the ring "give" too easily to make dependable, concentric circles; and the smaller the circumference, the harder it is to keep the drawn image from looking like an egg.I can't attest to the accuracy of the ruler, or using it to measure circles, as I really didn't buy it for that purpose.Suitable for a child's replacement for a compass, but not for jobs where accuracy and dependable repetition are needed. Stick to a compass or templates.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
