General(R) Pencil Compass - 8" Capacity is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It makes circles I'm not sure what the low ratings are for. This just makes circles. It's nothing fancy and it does it's job. As for the other reviewer who mentioned that it only opened to 5" or so and included the picture, that is the radius. The diameter would then be 10" so the description is accurate. I actually needed this to make some hexagon templates for a wall pattern project and it worked great. Only giving 4 stars due to the rough edges on the pencil holder. It didn't affect the overall use, but I see no reason they couldn't have ground the edge round vs leaving it just a jagged edge. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tool I've been using this compass for nearly 20 years in my woodworking shop doing layout. It's always worked well for me. Screw adjustment allows easy line-up to hit a mark. Much more precise and easy to use than a "school quality" compass. While the setting is spring tension and not a positive lock, all you have to do is hold it correctly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not "fixed" position one of the main reason someone would buy a compass from lowes is to do scribing. unfortunately this tool isn't fixed. the tool can move in the less-radius direction making it spongy. it's better than nothing in an emergency but I would try to find a fixed position compass if you use it alot

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Compass Not professional grade but a large step above a "school supplies" quality item. Not sure how durable it is but with proper care it should last many years. It was a very good value though and does what I need perfectly!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from compass/divider The durability seems OK but the screw adjustment arm moves quite a bit and does not give consistant, precise drawing movement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I used these to draw a circle to cut with my jigsaw Worked well. Much better than a grade school compass. Very strong and held the pencil position very well

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst ever purchase from Lowes Made of very light weight porous cast metal. Screw adjuster so poorly made it would not adjust on the threads, kept sliding to wherever. It is worth about .50 cents at the dollar store clearance bin. I think if Lowes reviews the product they will remove it from the self. It is not Lowes quality for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap compass and Useless Divider The pivot leg of the compass floats on the adjustment thread so it will not hold its position. It needs to remain fixed when opened like a drafting compass/divider then it would be useful.
