Speed conversion table

I don't know whether other people have the same issues I do with cutting speeds in posts and on software screens. It probably has something to do with being a newbie, but I struggle when a single piece of software has both mm/s and mm/min on different screens, and then posts on websites have ipm and ft/min. Anyway, I found it necessary to build a conversion table because I could not find one ready made. Hope it's useful.
The yellow shading is the region I use for cutting EPS.

Thanks Red, that sure helps especially when dealing with antiquated measurements based on the lengths of Royal digits and other various body parts

Personally, I like to use cutting feed speeds of around 300 furlongs per fortnight.

Brad, I dont think normal steppers will get you there, you may have to use warp drives.
