    I have come across a staggered compass and rule and don't understand why it is special. Figured this would be as good of place as any to ask. Thanks in advance.

    I see by your profile that you are not a mason. If you become one and then continue your journey you will find out

    The right versus left distinction is variation jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The meaning is the same. Each grand lodge has slight differences from other grand lodges and this is one such difference.

    As to what the meaning is, brother rpbrown has already answered that is something we learn as Masons. To become a Mason you have to ask to join us.

    The measuring out our actions and thoughts are very important (tools) for mankind,staying within the circumfrence of all good,and learning to never go beyond the line drawn is the right use of the given tools.im just on the path of the great work.a seeker of true LIGHT.

    Not a "secret" but something that all Freemasons are taught as they progress through their Degrees and so isn't usually discussed outside that setting.

    It doesn't matter which point is raised in my JD.
