I made these for a neighbor to use as gifts. It is the last two of my compass inserts. The housings are turned from quilted maple and stained with LMF "Nut Brown". The coins are replicas of an 1804 half-penny.

Eric, I love your compasses! Would you be willing to share where you get your mechanisms?

Eric: They were available from a couple suppliers via eBay. However, everyone is now out of stock. The only place I found them was a source in China via Ali Baba. Unfortunately, their minimum order qty. is 1,000 pcs. I used up my last two making the compasses pictured. I'm watching to see if anyone re-stocks them for individual orders. They weren't expensive - about $5.00 each.
