This page uses JavaSketchpad. You may drag any of the red points, and the construction will adjust accordingly.
Explanation of the construction: I first construct a displaced angle EGF, so that the desired tangent circle has the same center as the tangent circle to angle EGF and point D, so I can then use construction 34 to find the center of that circle.
