    Used it as a scribe when installing flooring along a very un-straight wall. Worked as expected. Simple to use. Cheap. What more can I say?

        Comments about GENERAL TOOLS General® Pencil Compass (843-1):

        This is the compas you want to scribe stock to fit tight to imperfect floors and walls. Avoid the 842 model, and go with this more accurate and easy to use tool for scribing. Leave the 842 for drawing circles, not for scribing.
