Comments about Learning Resources Safe-T Compass:

This product is excellent for drawing circles of one-inch or greater diameter, but the small wheel at the center "hangs up." This center wheel needs to be made of a more slippery plastic, or maybe even alumnium, in order to slide properly in its' socket. Everything else about the product is excellent! It's flat and has no sharp points, so it fits into a notebook or backpack with ease. As long as you have two pencils, you may draw almost any circular shape you will need in class.

      Comments about Learning Resources Safe-T Compass:

      I used these in High School and fell in love with them so much I asked the teacher if I could have it. I still have it to this day and now, as a working artist, I still use it to this day. They are the best compasses I have ever used. They do not loosen like the metal, pointy ones, and you can stick it in your pocket and not have to worry about piercing yourself, and if the little white wheel pops out, it snaps right back in no problem.
      While the radius is limited, only up to 10", I have never found this to be a problem, and I continue to use and recommend this product to others.
      Safe, light, reliable, affordable. What more could one want?

      Cartridge Comparison Guide
      • Cartridge Types
      • Ink & Toner Basics
      • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
      Cartridge Type
      Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
      Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
      Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
      Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
      What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
      Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
      Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
      Material Liquid ink Dry powder
      How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
      Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
      Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
      Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
      Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
