As all of you know very well, there are different gauge systems. So, what gauge system do you use? Smile


It is well-known that the body is made up of various elements, among these being iron. The reason we know the body has iron in it is because we can taste the iron in our blood. Therefore, it stands to reason that the iron in our blood will be drawn to the north, just as the iron needle on the compass is drawn to the north.

In order to make the body compass work, you must shut your eyes, so as not to confuse things, extend the right arm with the index finger pointing, then spin around three times to the left. When you stop, open your eyes, and you will discover that you are facing north.

You left out 'none of the above'. I buy my wire directly from the manugfacturer or wholesaler. Most U.S. manufacturers are equaly willing to use decimal inches or mm's. The rest of the world (I get my titanium from China or Russia) is all metric. Most manufacturers won't even talk to you if you use the word 'guage' as an adjective.

All the stuff I use is metric (millimeters). Wire and mandrels.

decimal inches.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

I need an option for "HUH???"

I take the wire, I snip the wire, I make the coil, I break the coil, I open the ring, I close the ring. Talk about different gauge measurements scares me! Smile

Kiyudr,

The poll was fine. I do not think we have had a single poll yet that did not have someone say "You forgot ____"


Peace,

Matt


'Tis true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
If I could reach from pole to pole
Or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul;
The mind's the standard of the man.
- Joseph Carey Merrick, "The Elephant Man"
