    Thanks for that, I had found that ages ago & lost the link! :doh:

    I had printed that off, laminated it & stuck the up to 1/2" sizes inside the lid of my drill boxes. Now I can print off a few more full size copies for around the workshop. :D

    On this page: http://mdmetric.com/tech/tict2011.htm there are two charts I have found invaluable over the years. From these I have been able to identify some real oddball threads.

    Maryland Metrics pages are a valuable resource and my heart sank a while back when the website was inaccessible for a change in ownership. But now it is back up it seems a little faster and cleaner. It is never going to get simpler given the sheer volume of technical data: http://mdmetric.com/techindex.htm

    Thousands of an imperial figure have always made me laugh, I have no chance of understanding/seeing/feeling that. Lol

    Not that much easier with mm but at least I can get my head around that. Thank god for digital instruments, I dunno how folk did it back in the day.

    I turned 50 the other month. When I were at school both were being taught, mm were obviously the focus though.

    For me it was imperial at school and metric at work but when I later went to work in the US I had to revert to imperial. We made test instruments for the world market so everything had to be switchable from metric to imperial, or what the Americans liked to call English units.

    The girls doing wartime work could always feel a thou difference, the most famous of course was Ruby Loftus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby_Loftus_Screwing_a_Breech_Ring and there is a famous engine builder who will only employ women because of their touch sensitivity.
    I can imagine a thou or ten or twenty, but I sometimes struggle with metric though I work in metric on all the machines.
    I know, odd.

    I'm odd, or at least that's what the wife thinks

    At 52, my school years were spent learning metric but my dad had an old fashioned hardware shop and everything was lb, oz, inches, feet, pints etc so while I visualise in imperial I always work in metric

    Same in the workshop, so used to working on old cars where points, plugs and valve clearances were in thou, I struggle to relate that to mm
