Ledin French 8" Pencil Compass Quick-Adjust Nut Brass
This pencil compass is made to exacting standards in St. Etienne France by Aime Ledin Construction Mecanique. Aime Ledin has been making industrial quality measuring and marking tools since 1902. This pencil compass is made from high-grade carbon steel and has a hardened and finely ground point. It includes a universal pencil holder. It features a quick-spring nut for rapid and precise fine adjustments that will securely hold any measurement. To make large adjustments, tip the nut to disengage the threads, and slide to a new measurement. Release the spring to engage the threads and turn the nut for fine adjustments. The robust “Yankee” style flat-leg construction makes the unit very durable. They have a burnished and hardened spring for years of service. Leg length is 8", overall length is 9-1/2", and overall opening is 8".
