12.5 meters = 41.01049868766404 feet = 492.1259842519685 inches

492.1259842519685 / 10 = 49.21259842519685 inches per section

There are 2.54 cm in an inch, therefore:

49.21259842519685 x 2.54 =

125cm for each piece?

### I have a Homedics SBM-300. Dog chewed through all 10 wires on the remote. Easiest way to splice wires back together?

Best solution is to replace the cable and possibly the dog. If you insist on repairing the cable I suggest you get a length of fine heat shrink tubing and cut 10 pieces about 1cm long. Then cut each end of the cable to give a clean end. Strip about 2cm of the outer insulation from the two cable ends and then strip about 1cm from each of the 20 inner wires. Then using a soldering iron tin each of the bare ends. Slip a piece of the heat shrink that you earlier cut over each of the wires and then solder the wires together ensuring that you match the colours correctly. Move the heat shrink over the bare solder joints and use the hot soldering iron to shrink the tubing. Finally cover the whole joint with insulating tape.

### I want a 1.8 stitch length to paper piece ... I can't figure out how pfaff creative changes to 1.8

..
Looks like your machine's stitch length ranges from 0-6 mm. So you are looking at something just under 2 mm--there very possibly is a 1.8 setting on your machine. Basically, your paper piecing instructions are telling you to set the machine to stitch somewhere between ~12 to 14 stitches per inch. The accuracy of 1.8 is Not that important. What they are trying to do is make sure your stitches are close enough together to make it easy to tear away the piecing paper. When using longer stitches for paper piecing, it is sometimes difficult to tear away the paper without pulling the thread stitches. Most garment stitching is set between 10-12 stitches per inch. So you want something just a little closer together, ie more stitches per inch. If you are concerned, try it out on a scrap piece of paper and fabric and try tearing it away. If it works, then that's all you need to use.

### What is the common demoniator of 2/5 and 1/8

I don't know if it just me, but when doing these questions, I always think about PIZZA.

You have one pizza divided into 5 equal pieces, and 3 are gone, leaving 2. The other pizza is divided into 8 equal pieces and only 1 piece is left.

You have the pizza cutter in your hand. How many pieces do you have to cut each pizza into to be able to describe how much pizza you have in total?

In this case, you would have to cut each pizza into 40 pieces. To determine that it is 40, we do the multiples of 5, being 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, etc. We also do the multiples of 8, being 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48. What is the first number that is common to both lists? In this case, it is 40.
Since we have to multiply the 5 by 8 to get 40, we have to multiply the 2 by 8 to get the numerator. We have to do the same with 1/8.

Good luck.

### What is a linear foot equal to and where would you use that type measurement

To the best of my knowledge a linear foot is exactly what it says it is - a length of 12 inches.

Timber and such things tend to be bought in small quantities by the end user and therefore priced per linear foot for each sawn or planed size. This is to distinguish it from the buying and selling of larger quantities which tend to be priced per cubic foot or other cubic unit.

Connect to track separator piece (the piece with the flipper)

### How to build a wooden pyramid frame for school children, 2metres on each length of base.

cut 4 pieces of 2x2 to1.5 inches short of 2 metres. lay them out end to end to form a two metre box. it can only work one way. then take string from corner to corner to find the center, making a crosshair. then stand a level rod at the centre to the desired height and fasten equal length lines from each corner to the peak. using a compound mitre saw, place an angle finder at the bottom and top corners to give you the angle to cut your piece with the saw set at 45 degrees, to give you your compound miter for the top. just set the saw blade to line up with the angle finder to get the bottom cut. the length of your "tight" string line frome corner to peak is your length of "hip" piece
