    Thanks LM.

    I didn't expect so many measurements to be added.
    Because of this, I am going to leave the first post the way it is and let you guys leave the information in your posts...

    I would suggest editing it into the first posts so that its all together, that way people don't have to sift through to find it once the thread gets longer, this IS a sticky after all

    Just my $.02

    The " stands for inches. A ' stands for feet.

    A foot is divided up into 12 inches. But an inch can be divided in many ways. 2 times, 4 times, 8, 16, 32 and 64 times are the most common.

    hm so 10-32 x 13/32" for example is 7.93 mm (or 0.79 cm) x 10.31 mm (1.03 cm) e.g?

    http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/10...rew--P180.aspx

    ??? It is 10/32 inches wide and 13/32 inches long right?

    1 inch is 2.54 cm ...
