    I don't really see the point in debating metric vs imperial. I just use whichever suits the situation, but never ever both!

    Not really a debate Jonathan & if you were 30 years older then you might be joining in lol. Sure most on here are more than capable of working with both even if they knock metric a bit, just a bit of fun really. I didn't really have a choice but to learn both. I was brought up learning feet & inches, my engineering training was mostly imperial but there was a bit of metric thrown in. When I got on the workshop floor the Navy had a combination of metric & imperial machines so you had no choice but to work with both.

    I'm anticipating that there there will, or would have been one. If so I'll join in for a bit of fun...

    If you have a boring head all you need is a bar to fit the clock guage to. Works well and is adjustable for length. I cant upload a photo from my phone but will post one later.
