Metrics, Lumber, and the Shop Teacher
Craemer, Peter J.
School Shop, 37, 7, 32-3, Mar 78
As producers of lumber are preparing to convert their output to the metric system, wood shop and building construction teachers must become familiar with the metric measurement language and methods. Manufacturers prefer the "soft conversion" process of changing English to metric units rather than hard conversion, or redimensioning of lumber. Some conversion examples are given. (MF)
