Parallel Plotter

A plotting tool that does the same job as parallel rulers by rolling without sliding. They are convenient for work at home or on large chart tables, but must often be backed up with parallel rulers at sea since they can't reach the edges of the chart and they often slip when used on folded charts. They are also more fragile and likely to break when thrown off a chart table. See Parallel Rulers.
