Finnish term or phrase: kustakin piikistä puolet
Vastaava lukumäärä keksinnön erään edullisen suoritusmuodon mukaista jyräysvälinettä 20 käytettäessä kuviossa 1d on 36 (33 piikkiä jää kokonaan mainitun metrin pituudelle ja kuviossa alimmaisesta kuuden piikin rivistä kustakin piikistä puolet).

The setence within parentheses is not easily comprehended. Any assist appreciated.

English translation:half of each spike
Explanation:
I'm not sure "spikes" is the correct designation for "piikki", but I'm pretty certain that what they mean is "half of each spike" in the lowest row of spikes, containing six spikes.

"33 spikes remain fully inside the aforementioned metre and half of each spike from the six spikes in the lowest row in the figure"

I apologize for any errors in my English, I translate from English and from Finnish, but not in this direction.
