That graph paper link is pretty cool.

I used to work for a hydraulic seal engineering company, and we had pads of graph paper like that. Was really handy for taking notes and doing the occasional drawing or sketch.

Makes me wonder - is there any practical way for a DIY-er to bind pads of paper together?

I could print out a bunch of that graph paper, and probaly find some cardboard for a back, but what's the gooey stuff they put on the top to hold the pad together?

I like those "cheat sheets". One of those got me through college chemistry.

Where I worked they had some king of rubberized glue that they would glue stacks of scrap paper together to make notepads. It must have been inexpensive, because they made a lot of them.

For calculators I use Calculator Plus. It has the conversions built in. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl....aspx?id=21622

Rubber cement?

Re: padding

I found there's something called padding compound. It's pretty inexpensive. Also read rubber cement works as well, but sometimes takes several coats to get a good binding.

You can also mix up your own padding compound: http://www.ehow.com/how_7790590_make...-compound.html

I haven't tried any of the above. Just the results of googling around...
