Thanx.

BTW, you missed the link to the PDF toxic waste symbols.

PS: nobody did ever reply & advise what you call a divider over there.
A divider is what we call the tool that is used to recreate the distance between two points. While a Caliper measures the actual distance. For paper we would just call it a compass.

I've never seen one of those before in my life. I've seen tons of compasses, but they all had a point on one end and a pencil on the other, used for drawing circles on paper. They're a major symbol in Freemasonry as well.

That's exactly it. So it seems it is called the same thing, just that next to none of you have seen one before.

Everyone has seen one, I think they're used sometime around 6th grade in public school. We just call them a compass.

What's throwing everyine off is the end of yours. Yours has a point or blade on both ends. Ours have a point to put in the center of the circle, but a small pencil clamps to the other end and they're used to draw a circle. I've never seen a variation on that before but it makes sense that you could use it to cut with too.

Do you call it a divider because it is cutting (dividing the paper) or measuring (dividing numbers?)

Hogg you are confusing two very different tools. The compass is only the name for the tool used in combination with paper. It doesnt matter if it has a pencil on the end or two slightly sharp points. The divider is the name for the tool used to replicate distances by placing one end in a slight divot made usually by a punch and then you score the material with the other end.

You would use a compass to plot on a map, or to generate circles in a child's art class. But you use a divider to scar material for proper measurement without needed to repeatedly measure again and again.

Some people use dividers as a form of caliper where you check for size in comparison to a previously measured length. You might say measure a 3 inch pipe with your divider and then just take the divider and compare it to 300 other widths of pipe. That would save you 299 times you might have to pull out your measuring tape.
