Your point is well taken. I wanted to delete the posting after I wrote it, but didn't see an obvious option to delete it 'cuz I'm a dummy.

Daffy....Yooooooo'rrreeeee Despicable!!
Really, I didn't know ALL of that stuff. Of course I knew the quarter measurments. Nice to know, BUT I WANT A CHEAT SHEET.

I am copying this to my hard drive for future reference, otherwise I will still have to ask my wife.

That's what I need to know Richard! I needz a cheet sheet.

BTW, welcome to Shred! Now, don't post 10 times and then leave. Hate it when new dudes do that. Stay awhile.

I forgot that Erik had given me the cheat sheet list.

@ toneseeker: Similar to axebuilder, I have decimal equivalents etched into my brain in 1/64" increments from my job. I had completely forgotten the method described by ibanezed4yrs. I'm glad to have been reminded of it, though. Anyway, 'nuff said.
