    One last little tidbit--and then I'm done. In the US (and Canada), nails are sold by the penny size, which is based on the 15th century English pricing system for a long hundred (120) quantity. So...

    Yes, but a UK pint is 568 ml, while a US pint is 473 ml. Just trying to muddy the waters :)

  10. Anyone got a second edition of the DG One?

    If so, I might have something in my stash for you. It's doing me no good... It won't work with the original DG One, however.

    PM me for details.

    Maybe in your neck of the woods, but here, for sizes under 4", it's black ABS. The foamed ABS is particularly nice to work with as it weighs very little. Exempli gratia

    Just trying to think locally. I have several tape measures and rulers and I don't think any of them has a metric scale.
