We love this tool, easy, accurate placement of buttonholes, eyelets etc, that's when it's not being pinched for woodworking purposes!They sayThe New Point 2 Point Mk2 takes the hassle out of marking out jobs that need equal spacings, ideal for those of us whose eye instantly settles on an out of place screw head. The Point 2 Point saves a good deal of discomfort and time spent with a calculator, tape measure and note pad. Finding the perfect sequence and spacings for a row of coat hooks, screws, nails, dowels, or shirt buttons is as easy as an equally divided piece of cake. Positioning a row of buttons on a shirt: Now the Point 2 Point had broken out of the woodworking shop there was no stopping it. End users were finding all sorts of different uses for it. They're being bought as a "crafters must have" and 1000 s of Point 2 Point s have already found their way into sewing boxes across the country. From instantly indicating positions for buttons on a blouse to evenly dividing curtain material into pleats. Hints and Tips: For Right and Left handed users - Always have the "Upright cut out" facing the pencil holding hand. If it s not, rotate the Point 2 Point 180 deg. For consistent results always expand the mechanism close to its maximum width before closing the mechanism down to the setting you require. Due to the slight but necessary play within the mechanism The Point 2 Point is not suitable for marking out small high tolerance joints such as dovetails and finger joints. When possible use the Point 2 Point on a flat surface. Always ensure both Pinch bolts are loose before expanding the mechanism.TOOL FUNCTIONS Equal Spacing Layout: Any finished job that leaves an exposed run of screw heads, nails, or even coat hooks can be a hassle to space equally. If you don't take the time to space them accurately, the only thing you ll notice is the screw head that s out of sync. The P2P Mk2 works out the correct number and position of a run of fixings, quickly and accurately. The 7 integral uprights built onto the Point 2 Point mechanism expand equally to give 7 accurate marking points. If it s worth doing it s worth doing properly. Center Point Finder: Where s the middle How many times do you just want to find the center of a board. The central upright of the new Point 2 Point mk2 instantly centers itself on boards upto 2.1/2 ft in width. Layout Transfers: The key to successfully edge jointing panels with dowels or flat dowels (biscuits) is a consistently repeatable dowel position. Set the Point to Point mechanism upto 5 between points and lock-in the precise setting. Then the layout markings can be transferred from board to board as many times as is required. Calculating the maximum number of subdivisions: Minimizing wastage on a solid wood project can save a considerable amount of money. That starts with maximizing the size and number of components that can be extracted from each board at the start of a project. Using the Point 2 Point gives an excellent visual guide when marking out prior to rough sawing.
