    This challenge is typically not needed when using metric tape measures. Having lived overseas for a number of years I converted to metric use and have almost never used inched and feet since. I invite woodworkers to give the metric system a try for a week to see how you like it.

    It's a slide rule! (Now where did I put my K&E?)

    Very helpful, very simple, very easy to do. Wish I'd have known this little tip 50 years ago. Never to late to learn though.
