Need to draw a circle? or rather… Need to draw an accurate circle? One where the finishing point actually meets the starting point? M.POWER’s Flat Lying Trammel Head Set will guarantee you exactly that.
Simply clip the two Trammel Scribe heads onto any length of steel or Aluminium Rule from 6 inch to 6 feet in length.
Choose the pencil or the hyper fine cutting blade and strike that arc.

Clip a scribe head onto a Tri Square or Engineer square to strike a parallel line to rival the accuracy of any high quality marking gauge.
BLADE KIT – TRI BLADE
The FLTS includes a blade post and a bar of replaceable blades allowing you to strike a hyper fine line. Used when set up as a trammel compass and accurate circles can be cut out in veneer, light card and paper.
The Flat Lying Trammel Heads Set consists of a left and a right unit, each with a removable scribe post. Each unit has a large steel pinch bolt above a "C"-shaped mounting slot that enables you to lock the unit in position on any standard rule or square.
The flat-lying trammel head is angled to transfer the weight of the unit forward onto the scribe point, pencil or blade, making their tip the primary load point and keeping the blade upon which they ride flat and more rigid than traditional trammel points, providing a much-needed level of stability, even when drawing long arcs.
Large and Small Circle Marking
M.POWER’s heads attach to any standard steel or aluminum rule; hence, the size of the radius you can mark is only limited by the length of your rule. Simply lock one scribe unit in place, measure out the required radius between the scribe point and pencil point and lock the second scribe unit.
Add a Tri-Scribe unit to a standard try-square or combination square transforms it into a very accurate and stable marking gauge because the forces in the marking unit are now parallel instead of perpendicular. Since the trammel heads will hold your choice of a scribe, pencil or blade, it is a both a marking and cutting tool, versatile, accurate, and simple to use.
Attach both Scribe heads to your try-square or combination square as a mortise gauge. Again the strengths of this over a traditional gauge hold true, offering increased stability, accuracy and ease.
The Blade post is included in the kit and creates a cutting gauge that can cut parallel lines and circles. Ideal for trimming veneers and cards precisely, the Tri-Blade also allows very fine and accurate marking lines to be cut.
