Default Hole spacing

You don't need math AT ALL to get evenly spaced marks. Get some elastic tape from a sewing center. Mark it every two inches. Put one of the marks where you want the first hole to be. Stretch it to get the desired number of holes with the last hole being where you want the last hole to be.
Done.

Great for dress making, I guess.

Then remeasure. You will find that:

No he doesn't, he wants 1/4" and 6mm doesn't equal that. Close but no
cigar, so much for metric unless you can measure 6.35mm on that tape

Do you *really* think that 0.35 millimeters (less than 14 thousandths of an
inch) is going to be noticeable? Or are you just trying to be argumentative?
Had enough of that from SWMBO this past week, don't need it from you too.



This is an old, old, old theread. But could not resist.

There are two types of countries in the world. The ones that use the metric systems, and the ones that have walked on the moon. You do the math.
