    I understand that you are calibrating the first increment of the scale. How do you know that the rest of the scale is accurate and consistent?

      Hello David,

      Once you have the first increment calibrated you could test the accuracy of the full scale by cutting to the next increment, measuring, etc.

      Hope this helps,

      Hello William,

      it was actually set half way between the zero line and the 1/32″ line, which would be 1/64″. It was set there based on the measurement that George took in the prior step when he cut and then measured to determine how much material was removed.

      Hope this help,
