Practical cut- compass

Needed to do some layout drawings to make sure I did some circular cuts in the right location on some plywood. Knocked together a quick compass on the glowforge.

Labels are for the diameter of the circle to be drawn.

Slots are sized for a carpenter pencil.

Great Idea. So satisfying to generate an iteration of an idea so quickly.

If I hadn’t first looked all around for circular lids, buckets, etc. that were the diameter that I wanted, and then tried to make a compass with a string, and just went straight to the glowforge, it would have been even quicker!!
