    Measuring sticks

    Good day

    Measuring sticks are not a new idea but usually, the distance that you can measure is as small as the half (or one stick) length and I wanted to measure with the same sticks even smaller distances than "one stick length".

    The sticks that I made are 700mm each and I can measure with them distances as small as 200mm up to 1300mm (I mean, inside distance of a box or cabinet)

    I also wanted to be able to measure the outside distance of a cabinet....

    Do you know why usually, when we are thinking about a problem, we tilt our head to the left or right ?...
    ...to concentrate all the IQ in one place

    So, I tilted my head to the left and what I came with is....on the pictures...

    Regards
    niki

    Very nicely done Niki. I have often thought about building something like you did. Good job

    I am surprised that no one has marketed a tool like yours to measure diagonals when squaring up a project.
