    Circle and Arc Compass

    I have a ruler with holes like this but it only allows me to draw up to 6" diameter. I sometimes needed to go larger so I got a piece of plastic banding and drilled a similar hole pattern. I would place a piece of tape (with a hole in it) over the appropriate hole when I needed to repeat the circle.
