It seems like they they don't make good compasses these days. I remember having a metal one that measured the circle for you, but all I seem to find are cheapy plastic ones that are frustrating to use and cumbersome because you have to use a rule to measure. Anyone have any recommendations?

We use the same one Myra's family uses. It works very well. If it isn't with the school supplies, go look in their drafting supplies. I purchased ours at Office Max.

We too like the compass from Staedtler.
