Timothy, Thanks for the “tool”. Everyone, just uncheck the fit to page
box on your printer dialog box and the size comes out perfect.

I have just finished my "Printable Finger and Wrist Measuring
tool". 

Very cool, Tim! Thanks so much for sharing it! This will be helpful
for my e-customers, so we don’t have to have faith in what they
remember their size to be. That has made me nervous in the past, but
fortunately never really backfired. Now, due to your generosity, I can
be more certain.

Thanks again,

Dave

Help! I was disconnected mid-search and lost the website for Tim’s
printable Finger and Wrist measuring tool. Can someone please,please
give it again? Thanks.

Timothy, Thank you for sharing a useful tool! I just happen to finish
grinding thick pieces of flat metal to contour and prepare for shaping
into bracelets and rings. Will this formula work for thicker pieces
of metal? In other words, will the interior circumference be altered
in size if the outside circum. is larger? I will soon find out as I
shape them into curved forms, however, I thought I might ask for any
needed advise.

Cheers, Rebecca.

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.

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.

" Will this formula work for thicker pieces of metal? In other

Rebecca, The thickness of the metal you are bending must always be
considered when using any measuring device. Use Tim’s wonderful tool
but add the thickness times 3.14 to that mesurement. Example: If you
measure the length reqired to be 165 mm, then the length of metal that
is 3mm thick would 165mm + (3 X 3.14) or 9.42 Thus you would require
174.42mm. A simpler formula would be to just add thickness X 3, but do
remember to always add the same units of measure. That is you cannot
add the thickness in MM to length in inches Hope this is clear and
helpful JZD
