That may come in useful in the future. I've bookmarked it for future reference.
Thanks for sharing boss.

Not a bad little tool,

Doesn't handle feet and inches very well though and gives answers in a metric format so you still have extra calculations after using the tool.

In my whole 40 year working career as a quality control inspector, handling volumes of blueprints, my employer changed to metrics shortly before I retired. caused me a ton of grief. I am comfortable in inches and decimals !!

Well yes i do work in metric ... for the most part but as with Clay, i'm very comfortable with both.

If you think about it ... all the model scales are basically old school ... 72nd, 24th, 32nd, 8th, 16th etc etc so i work to that.

the scale converter gives you an answer, for instance, of "0.43 ft" ... so you still have to work that out with a calculator, whereas you could have worked it out with a calculator in the first instance in half the time and without booting up the PC.

am i seeing too much into this or just doing well at my training to be a cantankerous owd bugger lol

Metric is so superior, but raised on inches and yards makes many of us rethink everything. And don't get me started on Celsius.
