403. Cyclograph for describing circular arcs in drawings where the center is inaccessible. This is composed of three straight rules. The chord and versed sine being laid down, draw straight sloping lines from ends of former to top of latter, and to these lines lay two of the rules crossing at the apex. Fasten these rules together, and another rule across them to serve as a brace, and insert a pin or point at each end of chord to guide the apparatus, which, on being moved against these points, will describe the arc by means of pencil in the angle of the crossing edges of the sloping rules.
