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.

Staedler Geo Student Compass (Staedtler)

By Nathan L.

Comments about Staedtler® Geo Student Compass:

Staedler was a famous name among the makers of tools for draftsman. This Staedler Geo Student Compass is small, and it's about 80% as tall as the professional compass that I have for so many years. The professional model (ELIOT GUILD, model FO 206) will serve as my basis for a few rudimentary tests of performance and for general comparison. All adjustment or tightening wheels are well proportioned and appropriate for small hands in middle schools and may be at lower levels. Of the single "thumb" wheel for adjusting or setting the width of radius of a circle, it lacks the necessary stiffness, and thus prone to change, if one is not careful enough and accidently rotate the wheel which can lead to imprecision in measurement or a change the radius length, etc. However, the general construction of this device (the compass) is mechanically very sturdy and shall last for years. Its package includes a vial containing two pieces of spare lead, unsharpened. One noteworthy feature is that the black pointer is reversible from conical point to gradually tapered needle-sharp point, thus increasing its versatility of use on many different kinds of papers and surfaces, while helping younger students to be cautious with sharp-ended objects and sets the compass in the duller, conical pointer for storage (and/or when not in use.)

This product fulfills my every need. I do stained glass work, which sometimes requires circles. This product allows me to draw the circles with ease.
