I like to design in both science units and freedom units so I made this handy-dandy conversion chart to hang in the shop.
I wanted it to look like the old metal signs you’d see in machine shops in days gone by so I designed with that in mind and then had it printed and mounted on aluminum! This one is 18x24 which is big enough for me to read from across my tiny shop, but I think I’d like it to be bigger in a large space.
I haven’t decided if I should put these up on my website, so I’d love to hear your thoughts.
More than a good idea for any shop!
I have a small ruler that has the common conversions listed on the back side that sits perfectly in the drag chain extension. However, it is really only convenient when using my 1F. Your large plaque would be much more useful throughout the shop though.
I saw no mention of the ‘Smoot’ for length. Yes, it’s an actual measurement and if you read up about it, you’ll really get a chuckle! I’m not going to tell you how much it is to force all you youngsters to research & read! Ahh to be young again…
