In 2009, I rearranged this website. I hope that you will find it easier to use. Inevitably some errors will have crept in. If you spot any, please let me know
- I promise to correct any factual or numerical errors, and will consider any other alterations. Also, I would love to hear about any experiences using the old units, especially in different trades. Do write with comments, queries, etc., but I may not be able to answer them!
The old site is still available here but it won't be updated anymore.
