Now THAT little jewl is going in my notebook and in my throwing kit.
Barring any unforseen accidents with the circular saw, those measuring
devices will always be to hand when they are needed (hehe) rather than
across the room.

... Place the depression where the finger meets
the palm on your chin and the finger tip to the nose. The reason I tried
this is that sometimes I use that measure for the opening of a coffee
while throwing. It turns out that its just a little over. The ring
finger is
spot on. The middle allows for shrinkage.
