Wing Dividers


AKA: Scriber

Additional Information: The wing is the flat curved piece which passes through both legs. On the fixed end it terminates in a threaded shaft upon which the thumb nut is secured. A simple spring holds the wing in place and allows for fine adjustments via the thumb nut. The thumb screw is used to lock the legs in place. Dividers can be used to lay out circles and arcs or to step off or transfer equal distances. They can also scribe a line parallel to an uneven edge or surface.
