If my "thou" you mean 0.001, then the answer is one million.

It seems to matter whether you say thou thousand thousandth thousandths etc etc or am I wrong again seriously we never got this at school this is engineers terminiology only not used in woodworking.A thousand im metres is a mm 800mm is exactly eight hundred mm. seems to be easier to me. Alistair ps I love you guys really I do best friends a man could have.Alistair

Usually thou is 1/1000, meaning one thousandth. Thousand is 1000. Thousandths is many 1/1000, like 8/1000.
