It took me quite a while to understand the scale! So a good tip, whether it be the 1/4" or whatever scale you're working with, remember that each tic on the ruler represents a scaled inch or a real life inch, if you will. Also, say you're looking at the 1/4" side, the numbers you see represents feet to that scale.
