Watched the videos last night and the professor was both entertaining and made good points.

I had thought of making a gauge years ago and never got around to it. If you want it quick and easy then it is great.

I was only trying to state that for me metric is easier. Whether 1/3 or the golden ratio to find a width of the base for a 10 5/8” bowl can be a pain. Using 1/3 or the golden ratio (2/5) of 270 mm is much easier to me. For the golden ration just divide by 5 then double it for the base. For flat woodworking I use inches but for woodturning I use metric since I will never have anything over 500 mm.

Lastly, to quote…”If want to be a fuzzy butt and do the math go for it…”
Either I learned a new term or auto correct kicked in. A fuzzy butt? :) Was that fussy butt?
