    Re: Need some math help

    Yes indeed. Larger printing can be had when you need it. I do a lot of woodworking plans on Arch E paper (48 x 36) and when I need to have them printed for myself, I go to Staples.

    Re: Need some math help

    Some UPS stores also carry large format printers. I've had the need occasionally to have full size architectural prints forwarded to me in the field and been able to email the items to the appropriate branch. It was usually ready by the time I arrived, saving me a trip across town and a lot of headaches.

    Re: Need some math help

    Yes it worked fine on my home printer on 8.5 x 11 paper. Pretty darn accurate with a ruler in 1/64 increments (2 45/64"). Thanks folks.

    Re: Need some math help

    Thank you all. It would have taken me forever to figure this out by myself.

    Re: Need some math help

    If you don’t know the math or don’t want to bother and don’t have a computer program to work it out you can draw a circle the right size. Any size will work. Take a wild guess and set your compass or dividers. Walk off 15 spaces or what ever number you need. You will probably be over or under the starting point. Now, this is the tricky part. Adjust your divider to 1/15 or what ever number you need smaller or larger. Then walk it off again, you should be a lot closer. Adjust again if you need to then mark each point that the divider touches as you go around the circle. This usually gets me within a few 1/1000ths faster than I can go find a calculator.

    Not trying to hijack this thread but a couple things came to mind. Well, I guess I am, sorry.

    Woodworker's Journal/Jet had a plan for a pizza peel that I'd love to make but the .pdf file required you to print it out, paste it together. Was wondering if anyone could print it out on a single/large page?

    http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/make-pizza-peel/

    The second thing is I'd like to learn Sketchup and I hear you are the go to guy. Any good online tutorials that you'd recommend?

    Re: Need some math help

    I could redraw it and put it on a single sheet to be printed out at Staples or where ever.

    Well, I guess I'd suggest you start with the Getting Started videos and then if you want something more specific to woodworking, you could check out my Basics video which is available on DVD or as an electronic download from the Taunton Store. After you hit those getting started videos, we could make arrangements to connect for some one on one if that's of interest.

    I appreciate the offer but knowing the time it would take you to do it, I could just buy one. I was hoping someone with a large format printer could print it in one page. I suspected by the file, it wasn't meant to be done that way.

    I've been through those getting started tutorials a couple of times. I keep going back to drawing by hand. Took some drafting courses waaaay back, like late early 70's. Guess that's a hard habit to break.

    I found your downloads on Taunton. Will be purchasing them.

    Thanks!!

    I redrew it, made a full size pattern in the form of a PDF, e-mailed it and took the dog for a walk around the long block. Check your e-mail. I sent it 24 minutes ago.

    Thank you.

    Awesome!! Went to walk the dog and came back and found it. Took less time for you to re-draw than me going through the first tutorial!! Definitely impressed!!

    Again, thanks!!

    Interesting. $25 at Woodcraft and $20 at Amazon or Home Depot.

    In addition to the Getting Started videos, and Dave's tutorials at FWW, here are some other You Tube training videos specifically for woodworking.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    You just have to be careful with that. There is a large number of videos that teach poor practices and some people make videos they call tutorials but really aren't.
