The magnetic compass was invented early in the Chinese Han Dynasty about 2,200 years ago but not until the 11th century did the Song Dynasty adapt it for use in navigation. Its use continues today but GPS receivers and solid-state magnetic sensors in other electronic devices have largely replaced it.
For this challenge, you are to model a mechanical navigational compass of any known design or a design from your own imagination and should contain all the parts required for operation. Be careful not to get lost.

Standard Participation Rules apply. Thanks to Mr_Barber for the topic suggestion.
Reminder: Participants in challenges (those whom submit models) are now required to vote when the challenge is over. This is to encourage the community aspect of the challenge by giving the other participants feedback on their work.
Note: All challenges going forward will start on every other Monday, run for two weeks and end on a Sunday. Voting period will begin at 5PM PST/PDT on the last day of each challenge and will end on the Thursday before the next challenge begins. This change is to make the challenges more efficient to administrate.
