A brass adaptor (supplied) attaches to one leg of the divider turning it into a compass. The adaptor is fitted with a carbide scribe (also supplied) and will also take a standard pencil for drawing circles, arcs etc.

Woodworker's DividersA very nicely made, nicely finished, solid-feeling tool with excellent joint friction which holds its setting even without the wing lock. The points are resharpenable with a smooth file, which whilst fine for woodworking, make the points too soft to last well in a metalworking application. The carbide scriber is a poor thing, having a flexible plastic stem, and the pencil-holder is a tad thin where the pencil-locking screw passes through, so use with care.
