**Center-to-center.**

**Measure**the**center**-to-**center**distance from the place where the new**pipe**will be installed (66 inches).- Subtract both fitting dimensions (66 - 5 - 5 = 56).
- Add the amount of engagement for both fittings (56 + 2 + 2 = 60).
- Cut a
**pipe**the length of the total (60 inches).

Furthermore, how do you measure center to center?

The **Center-to-Center** of any drawer pull is the distance between the **center** of one screw hole to the **center** of the other. **Measuring** the **center-to-center** of the drawer pull is key in determining what new hardware will fit and whether you'll need to drill new mounting holes or fit into existing ones.

Also, how do you find the elbow Center in piping? **Pipe Elbow Center Calculation**

- Elbow length in mm = Tan(Elbow Angle/2) X Elbow Radius in mm.
- Where:
- Same procedure applies to 3D elbows.
- Calculate elbow center to end dimension for 4 inch nominal pipe diameter elbow at 60 degree angle, cut from 90 degree LR elbow.
- Length = Tan (60/2) X 152.
- Length = 0.57735027 X 152.
- Length = 87.757 i.e. 88 mm Approx.

Keeping this in consideration, how is pipework measured?

**Measure the Outside Diameter (OD) of your pipe or pipe fitting:**

- Wrap a string around the pipe.
- Mark the point where the string touches together.
- Use a ruler or measuring tape to find the length between the tip of the string and the mark you made (circumference)
- Divide the circumference by 3.14159.

How do you drill the center of a circle?

**How to Find the Center**

- Lay the square on top of the circle, with the right angle touching the edge.
- Mark the circle where the sides of the square cross the edge of the circle.
- Using a straight edge (one side of the square works great), draw a line connecting the two marks.
