Trammel Points aka Big A$$ Compass
I expounded on the disparity in usage reversing for the divider and compass in woodworking. I would think most of that reversal comes from the fact that there is little need to actually layout circles (or holes) within the limit of most compasses. Why draw a 1” hole if it’s going to be drilled out with a 1” bit? Mark the centre and begin boring. Beyond a certain size though, one becomes more interested in keeping the circle versus removing the circle. i.e. Drill 2” holes but cutout and keep 24” circles. Seems obvious enough.
