Using Socket Wrench Sockets as Circle and Curve Drawing Templates
posted on October 1, 2008 by Woodworker's Journal
Socket wrench circle templates To get perfect circles and curves without having to make templates, socket wrench sockets can be traced for perfect circles.

Sockets not only keep your machine bolts tight, they also make handy templates for drawing small arcs and circles. If you need an exact radius, be sure to measure the socket’s outside diameter with a caliper first. It’s also important to hold the pencil at a consistent angle while tracing around the socket; otherwise the curve you draw won’t be a perfect arc.
