Need Metric Person to Measure A Pencil For Me.
December 10, 2011
Are there metric pencils?
If there is someone out there in the Metric World that has a set of calipers, I would really appreciate it if you could measure a pencil for me. Just a regular pencil, the most common one you would find in your particular country. Please measure from point-to-point or corner-to-corner to get the widest part of the hexagonal. Do not measure flat to flat.
I could really use the measurement to the 1000th (ie .000) and I would take it in either SAE or CM. Oh, and I would be curious as to where you are too.
I just need to know if a pencil is a pencil or if possibly pencils are regulated in some way and thus, vary in dia. from country to country. Maybe there is just one giant factory that makes all the pencils for the whole world. I dunno...
This is not a joke.
