I would guess some of you have some great trammel sets.  Mine is not all that special but works. I have used it a few times and can tell you one thing, the points on these will pierce your hand with no trouble at all.  : (. 

I think this set might have been from a drafting set and I believe I had to make the beam.   

Show us your trammel set and maybe tell what ya like or don't like about it.

well mine i got from my dad, made by Bridge city tools. it's 43" long made from rosewood with a rule incorporated in the shaft. this one is doctor needle sharp too ! i really need to clean it up. dont have much need for one really. well made as youd expect from BCT.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.



Kinda nothing special, and I rarely use a trammel. I think I got these from Taylor Toolworks. They’re designed to slide onto a steel rule of any length so they’re expandable. They do what they’re supposed to do, at least as far as for what I need!

Those are pretty, Pottzy!

I think I'm possibly your son...

I use an common (another word for cheap) beam compass,  but to be honest I usually drill 2 holes in a strip of wood.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.
