Re: Parallel rule/distance question
The only ways I know to make sure your course line intersects the two dots are
a) the obvious- use a longer straight edge or
b) a second ruler/straight edge that is placed such that the two rulers overlap for about 3Ē. This effectively lengthens the original ruler.
