Maths Compasses

Mathematical compasses are ideal for drawing accuracy and making sure that your measurements are correct. Maths compasses help with technical drawings to create arcs, circles, and angles. They're extremely useful in schools and higher education institutions. There is a wide range of maths compasses that you can choose from which includes drawing compasses, beam compasses, proportional compasses, bow compasses and drop compasses. Drawing compasses 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 have a straight-edged ruler supporting its two arms, providing a wide drawing diameter. Also, the ruler is useful for creating straight lines. Proportional compasses are scissor-style and have two adjustable arms held by a hinge in the middle. Bow compasses have a hinge screw and adjustable wheel for positioning the arms, offering stability and accuracy. Drop compasses have a pivoting pencil arm and a fixed needlepoint arm for accuracy. You'll find a range of mathematical compasses in our range to suit different budgets. Choose from several different materials to suit your needs. Metal compasses offer excellent durability and stability while plastic compasses are safe and inexpensive. In general, compasses span between 10 cm to 20 cm. Longer models take a little more controlling but provide a wide drawing range. Drawing diameters vary from 15 cm to 36 cm, depending on the range of the compass you choose. All compasses in our selection are lightweight and compact enough to fit inside pencil cases. They're also easy to control when drawing on paper.
