Quote from: klondike on May 31, 2022, 06:51:59 PMLengths of timber are often 1.8m and 2.4m too I think we have to wait until all the trees have gone fully metric.
Quote from: klondike on May 31, 2022, 07:14:02 PMIt's odd that we were using cc for engine sizes long before we were pushed into going metric in most areas. We even had a British motor industry back then too. Before my time but I think they were classed in horse power earlier too and BHP still gets a mention but using kW seems to have crept in as well.
Quote from: Michael Rolls on May 31, 2022, 08:24:05 PMA long time ago 'horsepower' was a calculation for taxation purposes and was based on the engines capacity, not its actual power output, for which the only measure that I can understand is BHP.Mike
