I needed a tool to draw accurate circles on pieces of wood intended to be made into a bowl. This tool (compass) allow me to draw the largest circle possible for the wood I'm using to make the bowl. Previously I had been using drinking glasses, lids from jars, and anything else I could find that was circular and approximately the size I needed. Now, with the compass from Staples, I can draw circles that are exactly the size I need. This helps me to eliminate wasted wood. It also saves me money because the wood is expensive. This compass, while simple, is exactly what I needed. It works as intended and perfectly fits this rather unique need to support my woodworking hobby.

A very good compass

I wish it came with a metal point that you could install for the lead, so that it could be used as a divider.

Broke Right Out of the Package

By Eddie

from New York City

Comments about Staedtler® Geo Student Compass:

I figured that all-metal construction would be better than the cheap Staedtler plastic model that broke in my daughter's hands during geometry class. But minutes after I took this Staedtler model out of its package, one of the knobs at the base of the compass broke off. No way to reattach it. And once it loosened, the pointed foot(?) of the compass would not stay in, which rendered it useless. Had to return the compass the day after purchase. Upgraded to the Staedtle Geo Master Compass which is also all-metal, but larger and sturdier. It'll be our third Staedtler. We have yet to see if it holds up.

Comments about Staedtler® Geo Student Compass:

This is a good and sturdy compass that will last for some time, even if students do their best to not let it do so. The middle bolt makes adjusting the radius and keeping it constant a cinch, and it is easy to use by somebody who does not have excellent drawing skills yet.
Staedtler could supply more spare leads though. That's why I give 4 stars.
Otherwise, a good buy.

My husband is a graphic designer, and he uses it frequently for his preliminary phase of design. He doesn't work without it!

Not good quality

By Phyllis

from Distant, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staedtler® Geo Student Compass:

I was unable to use this compass at all due to the fact that one of the small tighteners at the bottom of the pencil arm was missing, so that the lead would not stay in an extended position. Fortunately, the store allowed me to return it; however the replacement, which was a more expensive Staedtler model, was also un-usable. It lacked the horizontal arm which would keep the radius from changing, and indeed that is what happened. Circles kept getting larger, making constructions impossible. I returned it also (today) and bought a very cheap plastic compass. Hopefully it will work properly!
