You should make one in different sizes for finding the center of a small, medium and large object.
Quite right!

Instructions

Just place the circle you need the centre of in the point of the base, draw a line, move the centre square around the circle and repeat. Where the two lines intersect is your mid point.

Ha, I needed something like this last week and never knew of such a device! ... where were you then :)
It printed out fine and is waiting for the next time I need it. thingiverse.com/derivative:53648
Ha, brilliant! Thank you for posting a picture! Hope it gives you many years of service and centre points.

Very usefull!

BTW, it is better to draw 3 lines; if they do not all intersect at the same point, they will form a triangle. As this resulting triangle is (should be) very small, it is then easy to find the real center. So, even with a not perfectly accurate tool, it works fine.
