Thank you Nils, but I don`t have a idea what dimensiionsare you talking about. ???  PCB size 8800x1925? mil. as short of millimeter?

As I see you cannot publish the vector, can you wright me the dimensions I marked with letters and I`ll draw and publish the EPS?

Um... Sasha... mil == 1/1000th inch. The board size is accordingly 8.8x1.925 inches. Got the concenpt? Good. All positions I listed are the centers of the components/holes with the origin being the bottom left corner. 150x850 for instance means that there's a hole at 0.15 inches from the left, 0.85 inches from the bottom. BTW - (150|850) is a vector ;-) I *could* publish a neat vector graphic I just don't see the necessity to do so as the dimensions are all you need to draw one yourself.

OK Nils thanks for explanation. All clear. ;)

Doug, we are not all `mercans here. When have to, I deal with Inches, in decimal. Never used mils in my life and I have never even heard about it.

That's good to know. Never heard about mil before, but I had a hard time finding

a casing for a 8.800x1.925 meter board ;). I wonder what the HC18/U footprint of the

crystal means. I can only find HC49/4H in my regular shops.

Both will work. The HC18 and HC49 package only differ in how they are being created/put together. HC18 means the two parts of the package are soldered together while the HC49 package is welded using electricity (terminology?).

This is as opposed to the military measure of angle: which is wonderfully rounded up by NATO to 6400 mils in a circle, and the old eastern block armies who rounded down to 6000. I's supposed to make your gunnery calculations easier!

Even when I was working in inches, when I did machining work as a youngster, we never used mils as a term in the UK. We always used the term "Thou" short for "thousandths of an inch" Perhaps I'll give my next layout terms in microfurlongs.

Still, it does make more sense to me than having pins spacings set out in 2.54mm rather than 1/10"

(and before anybody starts - I do know the English have some of the wierdest measurements, like Fathoms, rods, poles, perches and chains)

Asaf might have a precedent for dimensioning his next box in cubits.....

Any other wonderful measurement systems out there?

You could measure it in Cun ;)

Good for finding pressure points on your synths. Probably no good for laser cutting.

Edit: Oh crap I can't split posts in here. nILS you should be able to, it's your thread :)

One more question... in order to position the sockets perfectly in center of openings using standard spacers I`d like to know in what the thickness PCB will be manufactured? Please, don`t answer standard thickness.  ;)

( Sorry for the tangent Nils - could you please do the splitty thing!)

The Japanese equivalent, The Sun was standardized at 1000/33 mm

1000/33 mm = 30.30303030303030303030303030303 mm

This now has to be the official unit for measuring  x0xb0xen

LOL! I always measured Cun/Sun as "about this long" (insert finger gesture)  :D

Well my favourite unit of measurement has to be the "ish" ... so universal!
