The Golden Mean
 
I was looking around on Amazon.com and came across a divider which marks out the golden mean for any length.

I am waiting on it to be delivered and once it gets here I will add more information.

From what I have seen, you set the two outer ends to the length of the pen you want to make, and the inner pointer will show you the dividing line between the top and the bottom.

Time will tell if I made a good purchase or just wasted some more money.

Here is a link to the set that I ordered: https://www.amazon.com/CALIPERS-Eyeb...calipers&psc=1

Here is what they look like:

I bought the Phi Rules from Lee Valley to do the same for flatwork like boxes etc. I have to admit I rarely use them. Curious to see how you feel about your purchase.

Mal how would it be used on a crocked face? You know. The people with one eye lower than the other. ;)


Or am I just being "mean"?

Pete....Is a “Crocked Face” occur when someone gets their head stuck in a crock?.....Or when someone has had too much to drink? :biggrin:

Elwin, you could have made one out of wood, for a lot less money. I have three of them I made, I used 1/4" thick wood. The plans are available in numerous internet sites, just look for the plans by searching Fibonnacci scale.

Yeah ..... right ...... Curly ! . Blame it on the spell checker !! . LOL !

Nice try ..................... !!

I typically think of the Golden Mean for flatwork.

For round, I think of the Fibonacci sequence.
