Mathematical Compasses

A variety of models for drawing accuracy.

Maths compasses help with technical drawings to create arcs, circles, and angles. They're extremely useful in schools and higher education institutions. The wide range of maths compasses you can choose from includes:

  • Drawing compasses: These have two arms that connect at the top with a pivoting hinge. A sharp-pointed arm stabilises the device and the other arm holds a pencil for drawing.
  • Beam compasses: The beam compass has a straight-edged ruler supporting its two arms, providing a wide drawing diameter. Also, the ruler is useful for creating straight lines.
  • Proportional Compasses: These are scissor-style and have two adjustable arms held by a hinge in the middle.
  • Bow compasses: This design has a hinge screw and adjustable wheel for positioning the arms, offering stability and accuracy.
  • Drop compasses: These have a pivoting pencil arm and a fixed needlepoint arm for accuracy.
