    I have a free program somewhere to print your own graph paper on your paper. Handy to have at midnight. Might still Google one up.

    It's possible that you got that picture from Lee Valley Tools here in Canada. I use these pads all the time. There is a metric ruler on the right hand side for reference but the grid is 1/4" squares.

    ( http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.a...43&cat=1,42936 )

    So, if you come up empty in the UK then perhaps you can get a pack sent to you.

    Regards,

    Geoff

    P.S. the postage is a little more reasonable here compared to the UK.

    That's known as "cross section grid paper". You should be able to find some in inch. Try an art supply store instead of an ordinary stationers.

    {also i like to work in the old imperial measurements}, yeah, the times they are a changin'. Metric system has no place in the modern world......of course; that's just my personal opinion. Transposing takes up too much valuable time....Sometimes I forget I'm retired so I have more time than money. Have a good day!

    Sorry,Bill,being in nz,know nothing about the graph paper,but is that a "sweet pea"slide valve I spot on the pad?I'm building the "metre maid" version,hence it looking so familiar.
    Have you tried a technical drawing supplier for the paper?Or make enquiries at an architect's office,they may be able to point you in the right direction.
    Regards,Hans.

    all i see in the shops is the metric 1mm x 10mm sq A4 pads. these imperial pads are pretty neat, also i like to work in the old imperial measurements
