Wait, what? The US is the only industrialized nation that doesn't use metric. Even England is in the midst of transitioning. Our military even primarily uses metric.

Used to be. ;-)

I sure wish the US would get on board with the metric system. Seriously. Finding 14mm parts in anything is such a chore!

... and then I realize that the gear rod is only available up to 20 teeth for a 20 pitch gear. I was pretty set on a 30t gear. Dang. Guess that ends that discussion. At least as far as McMaster...
