In search of a measurement conversion table/chart

In times past there was a small chart/table with lots of conversions from decimal to Imperial/Metric/... above the bench. No more, don't know where it went and haven't found a replacement anywhere. Very condensed, about a 3X5 card size would be ideal. Ideas welcomed!

If you have Excel, you could probably print one up for your needs - metric to English, Celcisus to Fahrenheit, etc. all you need is the conversion formulae. I just checked and couldn't find it as a built-in function. Doesn't mean that someone has it available somewhere.

It's a pdf file, so you could print it whatever size you want.

I know what you mean - I have one that goes from decimal english to fractional english, but it'd be nice to have metric in there too. Such a good idea, in fact, that I decided to make one in a format that I like. I got it from http://mdmetric.com/tech/cvtchtfdm.htm , but did a little bit of reformating in Excel so I could resize it, etc. For example: fraction     decimal     mm 1/64    0.0156    0.3969 1/32    0.0313    0.7938 3/64    0.0469    1.1906 1/16    0.0625    1.5875 5/64    0.0781    1.9844 3/32    0.0938    2.3813 7/64    0.1094    2.7781 1/8    0.125    3.175
You can get this at the URL above, or if you want my excel or pdf file, you can post back. Andy

Would one for your computer work?

Here's imperial to decimal for downloading on my website:

Prints out nicely when resized. I keep a copy over my computer before I finally learned how to deal with both imperial and decimal using my CAD program

I always thought a calculator was a lot handier.

Most machine shop supply places have these as give away items. Often it has not only fraction to decimal, but tap drills, letter and number drill sizes as well.
Also I believe that McMaster's catalog has the chart in the back matter of the book.

If you are not part of the solution, you are not dissolved in the solvent.

If you want it to fit on a 3x5 card, you'll need to be a bit more specific.
I have a couple of web pages with info that I've found handy:
Decimal inch drill sizes (fraction, number, letter): http://www.iedu.com/DeSoto/CNC/DrillSize.html
Dimensions for inch-sized machine screws, tapped, and clearance holes: http://www.iedu.com/DeSoto/CNC/TapTable.html

Here's a nice program that is used by a lot of metrologists:

Also NIST has some things available electronically on their website (www.metric/nist.gov).
Such as : NIST SP 1038- The International System of Units (SI) - Conversion Factors for General Use
http://ts.nist.gov/WeightsAndMeasures/Metric/upload/SP1038.pdf
NIST SP 365- Metric Conversion Cards

The back side of a Lee Valley steel ruler has such information. I keep three of them hanging above my bench. The 6" ruler is normally on my bench.
