? I don't see any tables.

Duh...I had one of the security options in Mozilla Firefox set in such a way that it blocked them.

Hey Ringer - that looks suspiciously like the tables printed in my Tafe learning guide.....

For those who can't figure mm-in conversions, across the tops of the tables, here's a rough guide...
3mm = 1/8
6mm = 1/4
10mm = 3/8
12mm = 1/2
16mm = 5/8
20mm = 3/4
25mm = 1
30mm = 1 1/4
36mm = 1 3/8
42mm = 1 5/8
50mm = 2
60mm = 2 3/8
70mm = 2 3/4
80mm = 3 1/4
90mm = 3 5/8
100mm = 4

Hmmmmmmmmmm from the Tafe book....Hmmmmm maybe they are...

It is an excellent book though...I need another copy mine is getting a bit rough around the edges...

Yeah, they do get tatty quick - I took mine in to work and photocopied them and then laminated them so they don't get grotty, I actually laminate a fair bit of stuff for the shed - I guess thats one advantage of working in an office....
