Primary among these are the compass, used for drawing simple arcs and circles, and the french curve, typically a piece of plastic with complex curves on it.
A solution to these problems was the introduction of the "drafting machine", an application of the pantograph (sometimes referred to incorrectly as a "pentagraph" in these situations) which allowed the draftsman to have an accurate right angle at any point on the page quite quickly.
Drafting is when one moving object gets close behind another moving object and gets into its slipstream, a region of reduced air pressure or even suction in the direction of the movement.

 Ruler-and-compass construction - One Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The straight edge and compass give you the ability to produce ratios which are solutions to quadratic equations, but doubling the cube and trisecting the angle require ratios which are the solution to cubic equations, while squaring the circle requires a transcendental ratio.
Without the constraint of requiring solution by ruler and compass alone, the problem is easily soluble by a wide variety of geometric and algebraic means, and has been solved many times in antiquity.
Therefore the degree for the minimal polynomial for cos 20° is of degree three, so cos 20° is not constructible and 60° cannot be trisected.

 Origins of the Compass Rose   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The compass rose has appeared on charts and maps since the 1300's when the portolan charts first made their appearance.
Originally, this device was used to indicate the directions of the winds (and it was then known as a wind rose), but the 32 points of the compass rose come from the directions of the eight major winds, the eight half-winds and the sixteen quarter-winds.
There is no absolute standard for drafting a compass rose, and each school of cartographers seems to have developed their own.
