To me, doing the calculation involving such a simple proportion *is* "the easy way". Scale drawings are time-consuming; calculations are quick. YMMV.

Take a look at http://www.sizes.com/numbers/triangles.htm
One of the calculations on that page will do it for you.
P D Q
is the preferred method for woodworkers to increase lengths and keep <BR>the angles the same.&nbsp; For instance, let's say a saw horse is twelve inches <BR>tall.&nbsp; The legs are angled at 15 degrees.&nbsp; The builder wants the same saw <BR>horse design but at it 27 inches tall.&nbsp; I would figure the new leg lengths <BR>based on a triangle.&nbsp; What other ways of figuring&nbsp; lengths on angles are <BR>there for woodworkers?&nbsp; Are there any websites with this information?&nbsp; I <BR>could not find any.<BR><BR>Christopher <BR><BR></BLOCKQUOTE></BODY></HTML>

Google "Microsoft Calculator Plus." It's the same as the calculator, but has a full conversions feature built in. Another easier to get to calculator is Start - Run - calc. -------------------------------------- <snip> DanG wrote: | Start | All programs | Accessories | Calculator | | Once started, in View you can change to a scientific calculator | with the trig keys.
If you use the calculator frequently, you can follow the path DanG provided to find the little bugger, then right click on its icon and drag it back to the "Start" menu. I'd suggest choosing the "Create shortcut" option, then right clicking on the shortcut icon and selecting "Rename" so you can call the shortcut "Calculator". --etc
