How to Change the Measurements

Changing the size of the proportional measurement is easy, just loosen dial and slide up and down to shrink or enlarge the scale. To change the proportions, you need to loosen the dial It loosenseasily. Once you have in disired position for your sizing, tighten the dial.

If you want to enlarge a small reference, move the legs till the small end of the X shaped tool is just touching the dimension you want to measure - say, the width of a head. Adjust it while it's on the reference. You can also do the same thing at arm's length holding it in front of you to look at a live model or static object you're drawing from life - as long as you don't move, the length of your arm is consistent and you'll get accurate relative proportions.

Without moving the legs, turn the X shaped Prospek so that the wide end is on your paper. Make tick marks where the points fall. This also lets you place your reference on the page easier - the proportion remains consistent wherever you put the wide end of the Prospek so you can decide to move the head farther from the edge of the paper or make it off center easier.

The legs move easily and stay at the same proportion once moved unless you move them again. Friction holds them firmly in place no matter how many times I use this little handy tool.

If you want to reduce a large subject, just reverse the process. Use the wide end of the tool to measure your object and the smaller end to make your tick marks on the paper. Once you have the tick marks in place, connect the dots with a freehand line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality made Very nice divider; well built and accurate. Should last a lifetime but the price is a bit hard to justify for anyone who has to watch costs. Very happy with Jerry's service though.... love their instructional videos. No other company does that sort of thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made. Easy to use. A friend in my art class had one of these. After using hers, I had to order one for myself. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built !!! I've only had the dividers for a few days. It works great. Thought it was a little expensive at first but after looking at how well it's built it is well worth the money. Should last a life time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent Proportional Divider! I had purchased a cheap plastic version of this tool which has holes rather than the high quality sliding mechanism this product has. The plastic version was very limiting and not very precise. With this product I am now able to get an exact measurement between photos (that I am using as reference for doing pastel portraits) and the enlarged size of the finished painting. Once the tool is set for the enlarging, I am able to cross reference any part of the original photo against the larger painting. So as an example I am able to check the distance between the eyes, width of smiling mouth, height of a forehead, etc. So when something doesn't look quite right on the painting, I can use this tool to see where I have gone off course. It is also a helpful tool for creating the grid that I use for the enlarging process. Best of all, it was the lowest price I found for this quality of tool. My only disappoint is that the plastic storage case (included) was broken in the shipping. I called Jerry's to see if they could get a replacement, but it was not possible. I guess I could have returned the tool and ordered a new one, but it was not worth the trouble. Bottom line...I love this tool and use it constantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new "Secret" drawing tool So much better than a stick or pencil in judging proportions! Truly helps making more accurate drawing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I do dog portraits, i had a plastic one before - which worked pretty good but broke. This one is wonderful, you can set it and screw it down. Be careful not to put holes in your canvas, I may round off tips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat German engineering The proportional divider does exactly what I wished, and more. I can easily get measures from a small photo and paint a larger portrait with only 1 step per dimension, and 1 hand. I cam also divide lines equally, same with circles, etc. and the size increase or decrease is on an accurate scale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not cheap - you get what you pay for! It is difficult to get a good proportional scale divider of this quality for less than 2 or 3 times as much. Very inexpensive plastic models are available, and I use them as well, but this device is super-precise, sturdy, and is marked with exact measurements on a sliding scale. It comes in a nice case, and is a joy to use. To paraphrase Ben Franklin, "The bitter taste of bad quality lingers long after the sweetness of a low price is gone." This is something that will be a joy to use for an entire career.
