Here to show off my Jack Sparrow compass 1st edition that is...
Nice work! I've always been a Pirates of the Caribbean fan too. Also welcome to the RPF! I am new too! Keep up the great creations!
Thank you, and also welcome! one of my favorites, and Jurassic Park, one day i'll make a raptor, lol!
nice work -- love the character, love the movie, love the props.
Nice! What did you build the compass from? I built one from the spinning toy available a few years ago.
I've used 4 mm MDF, PVC pipes, tennis ball, and plexiglass, not sure if that's actually the name for it internationally, lol. It is fully working with magnets inside. Got the ring and stuff on a website here. For the rest a lot of painting, not really pleased with the painting, but for the first prototype, it has to do. Now thinking of making more, and even sell some thru ebay, if i can think of a good price, wich i think is hard. And not sure if there be a market for them..

As do i, was searching for a compass forever, but not finding a good one, so i decided to build my own. Hard enough. But worth the time!
