Nice bits but looking at one of the pictures I still have problems understanding how a civilized country, which made the metric system official in 1975, still has so many adherents of an outdated and largely arcane measurement system. I use metric almost exclusively, the only exception being for reloading and ballistics as most of the base information is in imperial measurements such as grains, feet per second, foot pounds.

Im not a generation they pushed metric on growing up, I'm old

On the reverse of it I have a hard time understanding how metric can be used in machineing.
If these were done in print plans it would say 38mm which is 1.496'' ...... not the 1.51 it actually is.
Also my screw holes would read 32mm which isnt the 1.25 they actually are.

To me the metric system is saying 'heh its close enough'

So I guess you don't have any hex drivers sized 0.05906 inches, 0.0874 inches, 0.09843 inches or 0.11811 inches and your wheel nuts are all 0.15748 inches and require a 0.27559 inch wrench.

Metric is superior in so many ways and it is also sensibly linked. 1cc of water occupies 1 milliliter of volume and weighs one gram. It requires 1 calorie to raise its temperature by 1 degree, Celcius of course, and one erg of energy (the "E" in E = MC squared) is consumed to accelerate it at a rate of 1cm per second squared for one centimeter. This requires one dyne of force. Seems pretty precise to me and, in almost every way, more logical. The relationship between a kilometer, a meter, a centimeter and a millimeter are so intuitive and for true precision you can't beat a micron.

American engines were all designated by cubic inches back in the dark ages but head chamber volumes were always in CCs, a much more precise measurement.

Works both ways.
