There are some circle layout jobs that ordinary compasses just aren’t suitable for, a beam compass (or trammel) is much more practical especially when drawing large diameter accurately. Using a single beam section, the Veritas® beam compass deals with circles from 38mm(1.1/2″) to 610mm(24″) in diameter. Additional sections take you up to 2,030mm(80″) for circular tables, rockers, arches, etc. It has carbide-tipped points that readily scribe metal as well as wood, although the pencil head is usually used for marking out on wood. A micro-adjust feature quickly gives accurate settings. All of this comes in a fitted wooden case that even includes a small brass centre pivot disc for use where it is important not to mar work. The beams are steel and the fittings are all solid brass.
