  1. An excellent chart!

    I’m pretty sure a 245 amud Sefer Torah is only 62 yeri’os. I usually write Sifrei Torah using the 248 amud tikun (the writing is a bit less crowded), and it calls for 63 yeri’os.

    p.s. I’ve seen Sifrei Tehilim on klaf, but I’ve never seen any of the other “additional” seforim... Is there really a market for them?

  2. I also thought a 245 omud sefer was 62 yeriyos. Someone emailed me this because I asked him how many amudim a megillas eicha is. I have no idea who wrote it

  3. 245 amudim/62 yerios

    I think Eicha is 5 or 6 depending on whether it's Berdichev or Ben Asher tikkun.

  4. My yeshiva has an old tikkun for Eicha at 5 very crowded amudim.
