What is the difference between a tacheometer and a theodolite?
A tacheometer is a type of theodolite used for rapid measurements. It determines the distance to the target electronically or electro-optically. Tacheometry is a system of rapid surveying that does not use chain or tape. There are times when measuring with a theodolite and measuring tape can be dangerous or impossible. A theodolite is an older surveying tool. Those were just precision optical devices used to compute angles between known fixed points, and they required using trigonometry to get the final values. However, there...

Is it cheaper to use chain link fencing or to use plastic?

Asked in Crocheting and Knitting
Why does the start of your crocheting project seem so much tighter than the rest?
This is possibly because your tension is different when making the foundation chain. This is a common problem. One way to help you get a looser foundation chain is to hold the bottom of your chain between your thumb and middle finger (or whatever fingers work best for you) as you make the next one. This prevents the chain from "closing up" on you as you work. Be sure to work loosely when making this beginning chain. Another option which many...
