Recommend a good compass cutter?
Posted by Murphy's Law on Thursday, March 16, 2017 7:40 AM

I'm looking for a good quality compass cutter for making masks and I'm really having a hard time finding anything. I found some made by Olfa but the smallest I have found they go down to is .394". I need one that goes smaller than that. I know I could make a blade to fit to a drawing compass but I'm really looking for one designed with the cutter made on it.

I think, to get circles that small, a punch set or hand punch might work much better.  Yeah, they will be more expensive, but a cutting compass will have a hard time at that kind of size.

For example, if I needed to draw a circle that small, I'd use a circle template rather than a regular compass.
