Looks like they also drilled a hole at the one inch mark... that might work just as good but two handed. You "metric guys" could possibly drill one at one cm.

Theo referenced this hack in his post”DIY wins again”, 19th May. I have no idea whether these two threads need to be consolidated, just mentioning the coincidence.

I think the "new" version is an improvement on the early one you showed Doug.

Nice for marking the circ saw offset on sheet goods. 1 1/8 inch on my handy dandy DeWalt 18v saw.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I would've never have thought to try that!
What about this video? I always love short hack videos like this.
Now whether they work or not is a different story. You can't believe everything you read on the Internet. lol
