  • Two GREAT Conversion programs

    Hello All,

    I am a Quality Engineer for my pesky day job, and need to do a lot of different conversions during the day. Inch to mm, pounds to kilograms, Brinell hardness to Rockwell scales, etc.

    I use two conversion programs that I love, and thought that my cadre of fellow hobby machinists could benefit from them as well.

    CONVERT is a great program for most conversion needs, and UCONEER is for the "heavy duty" jobs. Both can be downloaded free, so if you feel like it, try them out.

    CONVERT - www.joshmadison.com/software
    and UCONEER - www.katmarsoftware.com/uconeer.htm

    Happy computing!

        Hello again.

        CONVERT looks like the more useful of the two for what I do here.

        Thanks Don!

            More goodies ....

            Thought I would add to the list of useful converters. "Unit" I've used for years. Opens in a DOS window and is windows friendly. "Units Converter" is another one, helpful at times too. Enjoy

              I've found that the most convenient converter is Google.

              Just search for things like this:

              5 kilometers in fathoms

              1/64 inches in cm

              66 gallons in cubic cubits

              5 dollars / 1 year

              123 CAD in USD

              Or, if you really feel like having fun:

              5 light years * 2 cups / 1 kilohertz

                  ((5 light years) * (2 US cups)) / (1 kilohertz) = 2.23824973 × 1010 m4 s

                  I couldn't resist...

                        I use the Google calculator all the time. There aren't many units it doesn't know about.

                        one mile in hands = 15840

                        1 hogshead = 6.76751483 US bushels

                        1 rundlet = 1.66666667 firkins
