    Hello Full Throttle when you say .950 that is 950 thousand of an inch. 1.000 would be an inch.

    I made it 22.86mm.
    I know I am really dumb when it comes to imperial
    Philipgpr told me 1" is 2.54cm
    .100" is 2.54mm
    .25" is .65mm.
    Don't know how he got them, but going on that:
    I worked out .950=22.86mm, and the 'nikel' one for the pump shoe of .70" to be 1.8mm.
    I can work no prob in metric, but am crap at imperial.
    Where am I going wrong????

    Sorry for the typo.
    I would like to blame my infra red keyboard, but Wales have just beaten Ireland in ruby union, so it's probably more likley to be the beer!!!!
    I have just edited.
    Yes I know 1 inch = 2.54mm.
    It's the rest of it that ****'s me up

    when they say .950 they mean .950 of an inch or .95 of 2.54cm or .950 of 25.4mm either way its a fraction of something

    there are 4 thousandanths of an inch to .01 mm which is why you use thou's in surface grinding ( its a smaller measurement)

    Try 0.1mm ='s 0.004" /4 thou

    Sorry I couldn't resist your typo!
