Hello, I’m glad that everyone likes my new e-tool. Thank you for all

the comments.

A few people have asked that the URL be posted again. It is located in

the custom section of my web-site.

Here it is the direct link

It is an Adobe Acrobat 4 file You can get the Adobe Acrobat reader for

free from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

I believe that Hanuman will be posting it on Ganoksin.com also.

The question was asked “Will this formula work for thicker pieces of

metal?” This is not a formual. It is just a measuring device. If you

measure your finger with this tool, you will need to add a length of

material relative to the thickness of that material.

Here are the formulas to calculate the length of metal needed to make

a ring or bracelet.

Note: For this purpose two decimal places is enough so we will use

3.14 for Pi. Be sure to use the same units throught your equasion and

don’t try and use ring sizes in the equation.

For a round object: Length of material = (Inside Diameter + Thickness

of material) x Pi

For an oval object: Length of material = [((length of oval + width of

oval) � 2) + thickness of material] x Pi

I hope this helps.
