Oh. Here’s another way to do it. Zero your
tape to one edge and then angle it until
it crosses the distance measuring a multiple
of 9. You may want a helper to hold the one
end of the tape and “burn” at least an inch
so you’re measuring not from the end but
from an inch marking. Pivot the tape until
it lines up with the multiple of 9 (+ the inches
you’re burning), then mark off the intervals.

Make two sets of points this way and then
you can draw straight lines connecting them.

You can also just mark off a long piece of
scrap cut to 72” in 8” intervals. 8×9=72
so that will give you 9 more or less equidistant
sections with 8 lines in between them.
Work carefully and a pretty accurate result
is possible.
