    Burl Source site with blocks dimensions in mm



    I really tried to learn inches… but failed. My brain doesn't accept them.
    So I wrote a Chrome Extension that would automatically convert block sizes from inches to mm on a Burl Source website (only in catalog section). I decided that it may be useful for some of KKF users, so if you are using Chrome browser you can try it.

    Chrome web store link: Burl sources inches 2 millimeters

    If it doesn't work for you or you need extension for firefox, wrote me a pm.


    P.S. That's a nice Tiger Maple, Mark. Really nice!

    These are special numbers for dumb people on the other half of globe who can't learn inches

    Actually, I think it comes out to the other 95% of the world that doesn't understand inches (we Americans can be a little stubborn)

    Be well,

    I personally prefer metric. It's sad that they won't just let one measly generation suffer a little bit to get everyone caught up. It's only one!

    Also made a Firefox addon. Available from mozilla addons https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rce-inches2mm/

    As for inches, I'm fine understanding values like 5" or 8"… but values like 1&3/8" or 2&13/17" makes me cry. Every time I wanted to buy something from burl source, I had to keep some inches 2 mm convertor in the second tab to constantly convert values. Now it's much easier for me.

    I just tried out the firefox add on. Worked great.
    Now I have to figure how to incorporate that into the site for those who are unaware of the add on.

    Thank You Anton for writing this add on.
    I have posted elsewhere that this is available.
    I am very grateful that you took the time to do this for me.
