If you are a sheet metal worker, a wood worker, leather and craft worker, a builder or engaged in any trade where measurements are critical then you know the importance of a good quality, rigid wing divider or wing compass.
A good quality divider that will maintain accuracy over many years of use has the following important features.
- HINGE JOINTS
These can be lapped or box type. In a wing-divider, box type joints will perform better, last longer and will not become ‘sloppy’ as the lapped type joints tends to do.
- HARDENED POINTS
As the points are the ‘business end’ of the wing divider, hardened points will be long-wearing and will mark the job correctly.
- GENERAL FINISH
A well-finished wing divider is a sign of a well-made, good quality tool.
RIMET wing dividers are available in sizes 6”; 8”; 12”; 18” & 24” from Robinson International Pty Ltd.
