    I need to make a few cuts for one block using 60% angles. But, I cannot find a print out online to use as a pattern. I don't want to go buy a ruler for this one time.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    There is a 60 degree line on all rulers. Use that.

    Can you believe I do not have 60% on any of my rulers? Tis true.

    Make your own template. Take a square corner of a piece of paper. Fold it into thirds in the 90 degree angle. Each fold will be 30 degrees. Cut off one of the triangles and the remaining will be 60 degrees. Tape it to the underside of any ruler and "ta da".

    Use the old fashioned protractor?


    Consider buying the ruler ... you say you won't use it?
    I've said that before, and amazingly discovered once I had it .... it became my best friend!


    I got lucky one time, and after my FIRST Shop Hop, won one of those monster 20" squaring rulers (or is it 22"? or 24"?) I always thought they were totally frivolous.

    Well, I can't imagine life without one now ... and have "sold" many others on one!

    I used this and it works like a charm!
