All tape measures in the UK typically have both imperial and metric printed on them, so shouldn't be hard to source. Its a good idea, something relatively cheap to purchase but even small 1m tape measures are useful and have a habit of disappearing.
Very impressive, well made and well described. The quality of what you have done for your GCSEs is far beyond anything we did when I was at school.

You could probably use a CNC to cut the tiles and then use transfers to put the letters on them (https://www.instructables.com/howto/transfer+print+to+wood/ for how to make your own)

I'd agree with that, I can imagine that is where the phrase came from but I've only ever heard it used for getting someone pregnant - though who knows perhaps in some town or region it is still used in the traditional manner.

I agree language differences can be really interesting, and a source of misunderstanding. Another one I know of is if you described this instructable as 'quite good' then being British I would read that as you saying "it is almost, but not totally good, there is still room for improvement, but it is a small bit above average' whilst as an American you would be trying to say 'it is very good, nothing really needs improving on it as it is better than good.'
It was something I was considering as well. Rather than having magnets on both sides you may get away with having a thin strip of metal (paperclip even) attached to the inside front cover of the book, this would probably be thin enough that you don't need to do any extra drilling/gluing on that side.
lol, good thing that these are from the UK then :)
I'm in the UK, Pillar Drill was what I learnt to call them and looking at some of our big machine stores/manufacturers Pillar Drill seems to be what they call them as well, although drill press is also commonly used (particularly with foreign product names). Hopefully the labelled picture let you work out what I was talking about pretty quickly!
There is no reason that a paperback book wouldn't work, although there is a risk that if laid flat the centre would sag where the paper has been removed. It might be possible to add a lock, however it would mostly be cosmetic as someone could always just rip down the spine to get access to the contents, the key is that they don't realise something is hidden there.
Please do let us know how it goes - it sounds a very promising idea.
