Rated 1 out of 5 by Lacks important features Picked this up to scribe some trim to a wall. Unfortunately there is no way to lock the arms of the compass. As soon as you transfer the scribe to your wood, you'll find the arms moving making it impossible to get an accurate scribe. would have spent a little more on a higher quality scribe, but this seemed to be the only tool of its kind carried in the store. it's probably ok for making basic circles, but for any kind of complex transfer type work I'd look for another option October 26, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too delicate for the tool box! The "coated die-cast" body is cheap plastic. After cutting away enough of the packaging to get at it, I tried to slide it out; broke one leg off with very little pressure. July 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not great for scribing Was hoping to use this for the window sill I made,cutting the casing etc. but the pencil placement and the the way the needle set up wasn't cop-ascetic...I'm no 'Riley' from PBS but I can make it level on the level and winded up paying a little more for a simple brass one..I wouldn't use this to spin radiuses either..you get what you pay for January 22, 2014
