    Default Useful Formulas, Calculators and Templates for DIYers

    I found this site while I was looking for dovetail layout information. This site has templates for Roof rafter angle and pitch, Concrete, dovetails, deck building, tenk volume and dipstick layout....... It goes on and on.

    I wasn't sure were to post this, its general discussion but perhaps a sticky in the Making Stuff section would be appropriate?? Any thoughts Mods?http://www.blocklayer.com/

    The only thought I have is you might want to post the link. But General Chat is fine.

    Glad you made it a sticky. The pulleys and construction layout formulators are good to have around. Wish I had a hard copy to keep in the truck. Thanks for sticking it Rick. Good stuff!

    Just a reminder that the Pocket Reference by Thomas Glover is in hard copy and like having a second brain. Okay, for some of us a whole brain.

    For those that don't get to go to the bookstore much (like me):

    I'm investing in one.. A spare brain is worth 10 bucks for sure.
