This may be a bit off thread but here's a little trick for translating decimal numbers to fractional.
Multiply the decimal number by an arbitrary number you want for the denomonator of the fraction, I usually use 32 as it's easy to reduce. The nearest whole number of the result becomes the numerator of the fraction.
example: decimal 0.163 multiplied by 32 is 5.216. Therefore the fractional equivalent is 5/32.
or 0.181 times 32 is 5.792 or 6/32 which would be 3/16.
Yes that is the one I found last night and posted,Thanks anyway

Sounds as if you are a math major thanks

hi ,
It took years for me to find this formula.I knew there had to be one. I refered back as far as an 1937 old Audels carpentry book. it said to use 13 instead of 12" when laying out for an octogon. I found this formula in a how to magazine.
Use 2.414 and divide the size (You want to use)by it . your case would be
8 foot divided by 2.414=3 '3 3/4"per side this is as close as you need to be for what your doing . If you use a construction master you have to do several steps to check this but its close enough. to the 1/16TH
i used this to find the sizes of and octogon roofs.
Hope it helps

Finally installed a 4" dust collection system in my shop. I'd like to find a 4" collection port for my Kreg router table (PRS1045) fence. Anybody know where I can find such an animal or one that can be modified to fit?Thanks!Continue

Hi all....Has anyone have experience using a Kreg circular saw track guide system for ripping long boards??? The boards would be 5 to 6 inches wide by 6 feet, I have a Bosch 4100 portable table saw. But ripping boards that length with a 45% angle…Continue

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.
I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.
First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
