Can show me evidence that circlemakers have claimed to have such a miniature stomerboard is in their circlemaker toolkit? I mean, they seem give the impression that a regular ol' stomperboard and tape/rope is all that's needed.
What if a circle has a line that is too narrow to even walk in?

Like I've said before, anyone who's ever been exposed to/played with this toy:
...with which you can draw incredibly intricate designs, with pens/pencils like this:
...would have little difficulty designing these "crop circles".
Even easier nowadays, than in the 1970s (when the "Spirograph" was a common toy) because of computer technology....
"Believers" must ask yourselves, why are these "designs" always, always, always located in just one type of crop?
It's not as if there aren't OTHER fields, with other plants available out there...why is it always wheat/grain-types???
What about flowers? Tulip fields? (Oh, I know....because THAT is much more expensive, as it seriously damages the flowers, and makes them completely unmarketable. PLUS, those fields are likely better secured/monitored/protected, due to their value).

THE MOWING-DEVIL: OR, STRANGE NEWS OUT OF HARTFORD-SHIRE
Being a True Relation of a Farmer, who Bargaining with a Poor Mower, about the Cutting down Three Half Acres of Oats: upon the Mower's asking too much, the Farmer swore That the Devil should Mow it rather than He. And so it fell out, that very Night, the Crop of Oat shew'd as if it had been all of a Flame: but next Morning appear'd so neatly mow'd by the Devil or some Infernal Spirit, that no Mortal Man was able to do the like.
Also, How the said Oats ly now in the Field, and the Owner has not Power to fetch them away.
