Re: Off Topic: Goin' Metric
In Response To: Re: Off Topic: Goin' Metric ()

One event that helped convince me to use metric was cutting some shelving from a piece of plywood with a circular saw. I needed pieces that were approximately 10 3/8" wide including kerf, so started marking 10 3/8", 20 3/4", 31 1/8", etc., and my head started to hurt. My calculator doesn't work well in fractions. Then I used the other side of the measuring tape, showing centimeters, and it was easy as 26.4, 52.8, 78.2, etc.
