    It's a 'cadabra'.

    A cadabra of abaci.

  • It sounds like an ideal place for a Neo-Luddite such as myself to shop, if only it were not miles away from my house, or that I had some convenient mode of transport.

    Pop out of Finchley Road tube station - cross the road, walk about 10 meters north, open the door, put hand on goods, take to the man at the counter, pay cash, get goods.

    Carlos Santana wasn't it?

    If only there were some way to contact them electronically from afar.
    I think I've spotted a gap in the market here.

  • A visual representation of their goods andservices that could be seen from anywhere that has this new fangled Internet would be great, but I think we are just dreaming really.

    I don't think the website is very good, they seems to have much much more in store.

    ** not actually the plural of compass.*

  • Thanks for that, but I have to agree with the paucity of Rotring Compasses to be found on the site.

    Looks like I shall be rolling over to Swiss Cottage at some point- what time do they shut?

    They never shut, they are London's only 24 hour brothel/art shop.

    I have not clue, is it on the website ? Ring them first to make sure they have what you want in stock.

  • Why do you need several, and if so, which ones? Are there different sizes?

    It's compasses in the singular as well as the plural to distinguish
    from

    It's one of those cases where usage is varied and sometimes confused. Lots of people say 'compass' to mean either of the objects in the above pictures, introducing an ambiguity to their usage of the word. Some people say 'compasses' as if it was a singular, others use it as a plural. I find 'pair of compasses' the clearest, as it preserves the singular, and 'pairs of compasses' for the plural. Obviously, many people will shorten these.

    They seem to have doubled in cost (at least) since I was at the Bartlett and last bought some!

    The 'some' indicated that Dammit meant several pairs of compasses.

  • didnt really understand that, but i'd suggest if you go orienteering with the one on the left you're probably fucked

  • Carlos Santana wasn't it?

    Steve Miller Band
    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Jeesees, I'm almost as old as Platini.

  • love that song!! wasn't the lead singer from another famous band?!?!?

    edit: boz scaggs was once a member.

  • From Wiki:

    " (Steve)Miller was born to Dr. George "Sonny" Miller, a pathologist, jazz enthusiast, hat salesman and amateur recording engineer,"

    What a great father....what a career

  • Steve Miller Band.

    Not to be confused with David Milliband.

  • A search for Rotring brought this thread up - does anyone require four 0.13mm Rotring Isograph nibs?

    I have some in the for sale section:
