Title: DS set square for use with your finds
Post by: maxwell8tre on April 18, 2014, 12:30:34 AM
Made these for use in one of my posts, thought I'd get a DS one up for general use too! Comes in two stylish background colours for the discerning detectorist, black and white. Fancy!

Just right click and save. You can then cut your find out of any image using an image editor (Photoshop, MS Paint etc.) and just drag it out to scale on the squares. If any mods object to this being a sticky in the finds bit, just let me know. I think it's in the most relevant place though!

Scaled printable images for download: 4cm (https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/BgHdq5nN-RM4Am0_jMVyyNlDr-ReW8YIGeo3yAetzEE?feat=directlink)  8cm (https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/RAWYJim3zdBpX8QOcMbCWdlDr-ReW8YIGeo3yAetzEE?feat=directlink) I tested these in Irfanview (FREE) (http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/) and Photoshop, and they both print to scale (MS Paint does weird things to the image scale, so it prints out way off size, can't figure out why!) 4 and 8 cm I think will cover most finds of interest, but if you'd like any bigger or smaller, then just request the size in this thread.

Cheers Stan! There's links up now to the saveable & printable real scale ones also. I'd recommend the Irfanview download to open and print the images.

I couldnt get this to print to scale so I bought a left handed geometry kit, the set square does exactly the same job
