string will help you to mark straight lines, define angels and so. To tighten the string one needs a rapid knot, easy to make and to undo.
a length of string, slightly elastic something to measure with a pencil some nails a hammer and possibly some tongs
Its up to you what you want, where you need the line for, or what angels you want to define. her is just an abstract example
as long as they hold a little strain, don't hammer them in too far
On on side just a simple knot will do. you might leave it afterwards
the idea is to twist the loop 8 to 12 times, depending much on the string resistance. I mostly twist counterclock wise, doesn't seem to matter much.
You might want to help the tightening, pulling the fixed part of the string towards the nail, also pulling the loose end , working with both hands.
by moving the loose end, keeping it tight, to the opposite side, the knot moves towards the nail. then let go. if all is correct, the knot stays. ...
you now have a tight string, a straight line, mark the piece where you need it, or transport the angle to your work piece.
Bring the loose end again towards te tight string, and pull. The knot is gone. Get the twisted string of the nail.
pull the nails out, roll the string, you can use it for years. String is a basic tool, try it, the knot is made in seconds. good luck ...
