e.g. what was an 8' x 4' of plywood is now a 122cm x 244cm. If we had gone metric it would be 120 x 240. Or even 200 x 100.
But I still think "I need an 8 x 4 sheet of 18mm ply" or conversely "2.4 metres of 2 x 1.
But how are sheet materials sold in Europe? In 122 x 244 converted from the old Imperial system, or 100 x 200?
I'm guessing Europe uses 122 x 244 because the USA probably dominated the sheet materials market?
Must go. Nipping down the pub for a couple of 568mls.
