Kerry it is not difficult to live in the imperial and metric world at the same time. I was schooled in imperial measurements until 1973 and then the Australian Govt introduced the metric system.

I use this converter several times a week https://online.unitconverterpro.com/

For work such as this beautiful buck, the nearest imperial size is quite good enough. The only time I find imperial tools essential, is when reproducing imperial dimensioned parts.

Now a challenge for all of the imperial-measurement lovers. Work out the answer to the question what is half of 31 and 3/32" in your head? Time yourself.

When you have arrived at your answer, see how long it takes to mentally divide 787.5mm.

I can do the metric division in my head but for the fraction equation I needed the converter. I know which system I prefer,

Cheers Charlie
