No Maths Measuring Tool

Two sticks hinged at one end and divided by arbitrary sectors provide maths free measurements.

As shown, divide a workpiece in four equal parts, for three hooks as example, by setting the 8 values of the tool on the corners of the workpiece, then take measurements between the two 2 values with a stick or a compass divider and apply four equal parts to the workpiece accordingly.

More photos and all construction details on this page of my blog.

Hope it could help!

love it! :)
