Thanks Louie and Glenn. I have long been aware of the 'Golden Ratio', but have not consciously utilized it in my designs over the years. But today I was prompted to check out a few my past designs, only to discover that I had indeed settled on that ratio without realizing it, as I designed and built various projects. I often fabricate ruff prototypes of new designs, then modify until it is pleasing to my eye. It is true that this famous ratio is something that we find appealing in objects that we observe (and build).

I intend to make a set or two of these special calipers of different sizes so I can readily incorporate the 'Ratio' into future designs.

This is a valuable thread. I subscribed IOT easily find again.
