The sector is a measuring device that solves woodworking math problems accurately and repeatably. How it is used is described best in the latest (June 2011) Popular Woodworking magazine. They also have an on line video demonstrating its use, very informative, makes one wonder why the tool fell into disuse as it certainly will be useful in any woodworking shop.
I wont describe how it is used here as PW does such a good job of it. I just wanted to draw the thing to your attention.
I made two sizes for convenience, one for cabinets and one for drawers and smaller items. The sector is used with a set of dividers and you will need a large pair when dealing with cabinet sized math problems. My smaller dividers are in the picture.
This is an easy and rewarding project that will no doubt get untold use.
