What is a protractor?
The protractor is an instrument used for measuring angles. The protractor is usually had a semi-circle size divided into one hundred and eighty parts or a full circle divided into three hundred and sixty parts.
What is the French curve?
A French curve is a template composed of many different curves. It is used in manual drafting and in fashion design to draw smooth curves of varying radii.
Please note: The brass is unpolished, and will contain superficial scratches throughout. Expect this protractor to appear somewhat industrial in nature.
It’s durable, and and accurate as far as markings and angles but the overall look has its faults. First off there are around 4-5 permanent fingerprints scattered along the front and cannot be removed with the included pad and scratches ALL OVER the back. The other thing it the actual cut outs seem to be slightly off, the circles are fine as far as I can tell but the hexagon seems mis-shapen and the 30 and 45 angles aren’t properly aligned.
This is a really well made item. I like how Galen includes some xxxx steel wool you can use to burnish the brass if you like.
I decided to get this as it was an all in one journaling tool that sloops easily into pouches or pockets close to your writing things. Looks very stylish and goes perfectly with other Galen items.
Please make one with other journaling shapes.
패턴낼때 필요한 곡선자를 황동 아이템으로 가질 수있는것은 매우 좋다. 그러나 마감이 깔끔하지 못해 날카롭고 거칠다. 갈렌레더 황동제품들이 대체적으로 마감이 아쉽다. 따로 고운 사포로 다듬어야 할것 같다.
A lovely item that looks fantastic in the folio. Edges feel a little rough, likely due to being laser cut. Will give it a light sand to smooth it out a bit.
This is such an interesting looking tool, and is excellent quality! I love using it for my journaling. It is a great additional to my daily use tools!
