Looks Decieving... lacks quality
By senior bogart
Comments about Maped Precision Bow Compass:
by the looks in picture I thought it was secured from sliding of the4 width bar screw mech. went to draw a circle and it slipped bad not to mention it messed up a drawing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Can't wait to use this!

This really is a precision tool for a fantastic price. The wheel and screws turn smoothly in their plastic settings and have a solid feel without stiffness. It comes with an extra pencil lead in a small vial, and the lead holder detaches to receive a pencil/pen holder attachment. An unbelievable value at the sale price!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Right out of the box this compass had a nice weight to it, so I was excited! But then I noticed the interchangeable arm (lead/universal adapter) has a little too much wiggle room.It definitely affects the performance. It might be okay for grade school, not for geometrical precision...The universal adapter can hold a micron, not a sharpie though.I'm going to have to keep searching, because this is a no go.
