A (nearly practical) machine that unifies and extends ruler and compass
constructions is the one tracing logarithmic spirals. It solves
the n-section of any angle. At my knowledge, limits of such constructions
have not yet been defined. (Cf. Milici, P., and R. Dawson. "The equiangular
compass." *The Mathematical Intelligencer* (2012): 1-5.)
