Throw away your tape measure - Go 32mm system

Throw away your tape measure - Go 32mm system

5 comments

The 32mm system is a method of assembling cabinet boxes that is now standard for most hardware sold today.

It is extremely accurate, very quick, and I can assemble with the utmost confidence without double checking any measurements before a cut.
