International Readers:

I am U.S. based but always consider international readers with everything I write and publish. I appreciate your readership very much! This guide uses Standard/Imperial measurements but only as examples; the instructions are easily converted to metric. The guide is formatted for a landscape oriented U.S. letter-sized sheet (279.4w x 215.9h mm) but will scale to fit an A4 printer sheet.
