Kerrick's Unit Conversion Cheat Sheet

Kerrick

We know how frustrating it can be trying to figure out if a product from the US or Europe is spec'd right for your Aussie made machine. Or if you're trying to convert imperial measurements to metric measurements but you like the rest of us are a little shaky on the formulas. We're in the same boat as you and we've had enough of having to scour various websites and apps trying to find the formulas we need. So we decided to gather all the unit conversion formulas we could think of and store them in one handy place for everyone to use.
