I cannot find my tape measure.... sean John Desjardins 12042003, 09:33 PM As a quick guess ~ 0.020  0.050" smaller than the butt od in the rod specs should get you in the ballpark. You could wrap a thread around the rod a couple of times and then mark the thread at one location. Unwrap the thread, and measure the length. To get the diameter divide the length by (pi * # of turns). If you need better accuracy spring for a micrometer or calipers. tonyd 12052003, 04:30 AM Originally posted by John Desjardins To get the diameter divide the length by (pi * # of turns). [/B] Hi John,could you explain what " pi* " is? You kind of lost me on this.LOL. To get the diameter divide the length by ? Thanks. BobK 12052003, 07:35 AM In case John doesn't check his post, the mathematical value of the Greek letter "pi" is 3.1416 (Don't they teach this in 3rd grade anymore???) :hehe: BobK:rolleyes: John Desjardins 12052003, 08:21 AM Thanks Bob, Geometry is still taught , but I think its at the high school level. Teaching the use of the slide rule is whats gone the way of the dodo bird. I sure don't remember how to use it. tonyd 12062003, 03:03 AM Thanks Bob. That's what I thought John meant but the "*" after "pi" kind of made me second guess. I wanted to make sure it wasn't "pi squared" or something ;) SDHflyfisher 12062003, 09:16 AM they still teach pi in grade school and depending how smart you are in math they also teach geometry to sophmores in high school and smart freshman BobK 12062003, 10:23 AM Now they teach that in High School? It's part of Geometry? Not in grade school anymore? Yeah, I guess school isn't what it used to be. :rolleyes: Boy, I guess I'm showing my age!:hehe: BobK SDHflyfisher 12062003, 11:56 AM you missed the first part of my post they still teach it in grade school all they taught to do with it though was to find the circumference of a circle they use it more in high school though
