Unfortunately "units" fails to convert any of my nice set of metric
allen wrenches to 3/64 inch. And that is the point of my signature. The
US system of units puts unnecessary barriers on trade and use of
hardware from other countries.
Three nations have not officially adopted the International System
of Units as their primary or sole system of measurement: Burma,
Liberia, and the United States.
