DIY centering rule
Next time you need to mark the center of a workpiece, slide the 0″ ends of two steel rules together and fasten them with a piece of tape or a rare-earth magnet. Adjust the rules on the workpiece until the measurement at the edges reads the same on both rules, then mark the center where the rules meet.
