So all you Mil guys can relax now...

Sorry for not completely explaining myself but I figured all posts would be read and the connection would come across.

Sorry, you of all people I should have known. I didn't even look at who posted it. Living with mils and using them in metric all the time, but knowing they're not tied together or synonymous, the assumption they are gets old.

No biggie, it was good to clairify. I don't want to be associated with gving wrong info or the wrong impressions in my posts. There is plenty of BS going on these days anyway.

Thanks

Jeff

............along with sine and co-sine, tangent and co-tangent. Thank goodness for Machinery's Handbook and the wonderful tables contained therein. They made it easy to stack the appropriate dimension in gage blocks....

Jeff..... spinning wrenches today has become more of a computer technician than a mechanic. First thing our guys do is plug in a laptop to the data port and offload error codes which go to the engine manufacturer who then, in turn determines the issue and instructs the technician what to replace or what repairs are needed, at least on heavy trucks.

Interesting how computers have invaced every aspect of our lives.....
