:shock:
For some time now I have been looking for some kind of measure for recording and photographing finds. I have done some with a ruler and pen but they never seem to be neat enough for me. Anyway while on one of those days we all enjoy (out shopping with the wife), she said while strolling through Poundland,"will this do for your measure"? Brilliant i said. Its a folding ruler in cm and costs a £1. If you dismantle the ends you are left with 2 lengths at 20cm each which is good for most things. Here is a quick picture I did with it this afternoon. Just thought Id share it with you in case anyone else is looking for some way of recording and measuring your finds.

Regards Pete

I picked one up today, a two metre folding rule for a whole £1. I see you edited the 2m out replacing it with cm, post processing was it?

Get a knife with a Sharp blade and just gently scrape the 2m off, we know that they will be cm. :g50:
