We show that every point in the plane which can be constructed by a compass and a ruler, given a setS of points, can be constructed using a compass alone so that the following restriction is met. LetO andK be two arbitrarily chosen distinct points ofS. Then every point is obtained as a proper intersection of two circles that are either completely symmetrical with respect to the lineOK or have both their centers on this line.
