Do I need 'the' tool

Postby Colin F » Wed Sep 24, 2003 9:21 pm

If I had proffered this reason to the craftsman who taught me my trade, I would have received a hearty cuff on the ear and put on tubeplate deburring for a week.

When I was a "sprog" I would have agreed with you, but a consider a "few" years of experience allows me to speak my mind![:p]

But having said that I would agree with you on the silly way metric measurements are shown. I can visualise what 3" looks like but have to resort to a ruler for 30mm[xx(]

Growing up with feet 'n' inches the metric does come hard and is no more logical or easier to visualise.

I work on the basis the 25 mm = 10" and 30 = 1' 60 = 2' etc and everything inbetween is exactly that!

......and why/how is plasterboard 6' long x 1200mm wide?
