The second tool from the right in this example, called a trammel, was used to duplicate distances. It was also used to mark circles. Next to the trammel are two folding rules. The next tool called a divider, was used to measure out equal distances on a board. The tool spins from one leg to the other and the marks it leaves behind are the places where you would cut to make equally-sized pieces.
