I'm not from Canadia, but 36.7 mm IS in metric. If the confusion is over the 36,7 versus 36.7 just remember that in the rest of the world they use commas in place of periods as decimals.

Ok, but how do you actually say it?

thirty six point seven millimeters? That's doesn't seem right.

Kinda like 1.444" is said "one and four hundred forty four thousands of an inch"
right <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

Yeah. 36-point-7 millimeters is what I say when I see it. I guess you *could* say 36 and 7 tenths millimeters. Talking like that is a pain in the butt though...I see 1.444" and say 1-point-4-4-4 inches.

Well if you must know, I'm measuring a zytanium crosspin and the hole in the carrier. The crosspin doesn't seem to fit, so I figured I better sound Canadian when I call and complain. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

The cross pin is actually .002" larger than the hole. This doesn't sound right to me. I've never had to assemble crosspins with a sledge hammer before. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

So how do you say 36,7 Paul? I know you don't call that comma a point! Actually I guess that would be the canadian thing to do <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Up here a decimal is . but I think in french it is , for a decimal. I think most other european languages use , too.
