Hi Pat, I have read your current issue of Metrication Matters - as usual it is full of interesting bits of information.

Mr. Naughtin, Thank you for the recent edition of the Metrication Matters. It is an excellent publication and it is a good source of sound guidance on converting to metric.

In spite of the slow movement towards metric use and the many disappointments that we have encountered we are seeing progress in many areas. ...

Hi Pat Thank you for all the great information on Metrication. This is the first time I tried your quiz at /docs/MetricationQuiz.pdf but I really liked it. I did well on Knowledge, Ok on skill and have more work to do on my personal use of metric, but thanks to you I'm on my way. Keep up the great work!

How do I know?

Because I write the newsletter! I was born in Australia before the Australian government made the decision to 'Go metric'. So I was able to closely observe highly successful metrication programs in a whole range of crafts, trades, and professions.

I simply select from the best of these to write 'Metrication matters'.

I have also consulted and spoken to groups all over the world, including the USA, so I know what is needed in all of these places.

(By the way, I have also seen a few not so successful attempts at metric conversion but you will rarely find references to these methods in 'Metrication matters'.)
