Okay so I'm mildly confused here. I want to make a WPI tool. Here I am searching methods and coming up with things that confuse the snot out of me. example: One site says to take a 1/4 dowel and mark 1 inch and wrap. Next site says take a piece of wood that is one inch tall by 6 or so inches long and mark off 1 inch and wrap. Now maybe it's just perspective, but would that not yield two different counts? I'd test it out if I had the mats at hand, but my chance of getting to a hardware store is slim atm... Does anyone have a pattern or link to a pattern for one of these?
(and yes, I know a standard ruler would work just fine, but I want to make something perty... cause I'm intoxicated with spining tools to.. not just spinning...)
