I was hoping to read something interesting. If you want to chase the fish,
you should probably choose one less piscatorially-oriented who can't
tie a royal coachman with the same ease with which you tie your shoes....
Maybe you should stick to music? Repeat at Cod(a)?

Actually, we weren't referring to fish. Clues are for sale at...Oh,
P.S: I tie my tennies loosely so I can don them like slip-ons. My
laces are stitched so they don't come undone, as they were wont to.
Every day above ground is a Good Day(tm).
I use a level once in a while, but usually do it with a laser line projector..
I think I paid $10 for it at Harbor Freight..
Just set it on a surface with it projecting a line, set the screws until it's
level and line the shelf or whatever up with it..
Very handy as a "3rd hand"..
I use those Black and Decker Laser Level things. They work reasonably
Where I need more than one fastener to hang something, I will mark
(and drive a finish nail temporarily) or position the first fastener
and lay the (ordinary 4' level) upon it to locate the next fastener -
repeating as necessary. Then, using a line between the first and last
marks, "measure twice" or double check my work.
Simpler and more precise: Use 1x board that is a bit longer than the
distance between the two end fasteners, hold board up to piece to be
hung, transfer/mark fastener positions to board, level board on the
wall, transfer marks off board to wall.
Nice idea. What's a good way when the distance is 30 feet or so (for
instance if you were
building two structures that you wanted to "match")? Guess that's when it's
one of those laser levels, no?
I have three laser levels, none of which I would usually bother to take
out to "hang something" on the wall, unless, of course, it was a row of
kitchen cabinets ...
So yep ... they do come in handy. :)
String with a level hung on it will come pretty close--probably be as
accurate as a cheap laser level--if you want to be precise use a garden hose
and a couple of lengths of clear vinyl tubing stuck into the ends of it
--if you want to be precise use a garden hose
Priceless! :::a few claps directed your way:::
Look me a few minutes to figure it out! The water levels at each end will
always match! : )
A lot of potential there: Pound two stakes into the ground, attach the ends
of the hose to the stakes, fill with water,
and mark the levels. A beautiful solution, IMO. Where did you learn that
