Color me DUMB!

Page 2 of 2  

My old boss thought it would be a good idea to chuck one up in router once. Very short experiment.

How many employees had to change their shorts?
Spinning non-router stuff in a router is flat scary!

We all err on occasion, the ones that bother me are the ones I make over and over again. A cartoon, by Steve Spiro, I saw today reminded me of one that haunts me again and again. You know the thing on the end of a tape measure that nobody trusts so we measure starting at the one ince mark, and then somehow wind up with a piece that is one inch too short rather than off by 1/64th. I repeat this one regularly. DOH squared!

Now, there's an idea...
A series of rules and tape measures with the zero mark an inch in from the end...
Oh, Robin Lee... Paging Mister Rob Lee!

If and when I need to do the 'accurate' tape-measure read.. I use the 10" mark. That way, you will see the error... an inch can hise itself. 10" is much harder to hide. Not to mention that it makes the conversion a little easier.....now... I said not to mention it...

... but, it's a whole lot easier to fix a board that's one inch too long than one that is one inch too short. (or even 1/4" too short -- DAMHIKT)

In OZ, we have the "Hundred Mil Trick". Measuring from the 100mm mark on the tape and............... you guessed it. :)

Rather than starting from the one inch mark start from the ten inch mark. A mismeasurment is a little more noticeable.
