Hints and tips.
Do you want to drill a hole to a set depth? The easy way is to slide a piece of plastic tube over the drill, adjust the drill in the chuck until the exposed drill  length is the same as the hole depth required.
Get a cheap set of digital verniers, grind one leg shorter than the other, put a point on it and you have an accurate marking out tool.
Do you want to use LED lighting on your boat? This useful LED wizard will do the sums for you.

Trying to convert one scale to another? This will help you out.
