    Shexey...

    Did you know the thread of a screw acts as an inclined plane? It delivers a mechanical advantage because you turn the screw a lot to have it go into the wood a little. Thus, the distance moved is greater than the delivered force? Clever eh!

    345, used a lot in building to confirm square corners.

    The scale of the drawing is pish btw, if that represents 3cm then the other side is well over 4

    I think the scale of the horizontal axis is twice that of the vertical... Or we are looking at the diagram from an angle with the vertical axis furthest away?

    Maybe you're both viewing it in widescreen, you need to change your monitor resolutions.
