Also, what is a compass set? A **compass** is a drawing instrument used for drawing circles and arcs. It has two legs, one with a point and the other with a pencil or lead. You can adjust the distance between the point and the pencil and that **setting** will remain until you change it.

Keeping this in view, how do you make a large circle with a compass?

Using a tape measure, **make** a mark equal to the radius of the **circle** you want to **draw**. Remove the board from the workpiece and drill a second hole at the location you just marked. To **draw** a **circle**, insert the nail in the first hole, pass the tip of a pencil through the second hole and **draw** your **circle**.

How do you draw a compass?

- Step 1: Prepare the Compass Arm. Take the nail and push it through the string.
- Step 2: Prepare the Center. Find where the center of the circle will be.
- Step 3: Prepare the Drawing Swing. Lay a tape measure out, with the 0" mark at the center of the circle.
- Step 4: Draw the Circle.
- Step 5: Reveal the Circle!
