Would you pin your conversion chart to Pinterest so I can post it? It is very good. Will it work if it is repinned?

Sorry Jill, it’s not a pin but please let your friends know where they can find it. — RG

The chart is helpful, however, the calculator doesn’t work.

Also, the capchas are HORRIBLE. Impossible to read. It has taken at least three tries to get them right.

Q, not sure why it is not working for you, I just tested it and it worked fine for me. The Capchas are horrible but until I can figure out how to get Akismet to work with Joomla, I’m not sure what else to do. – RG

Thanks for the conversion table, just moved to Europe from U.S. having to convert all sorts of measurements. This table works great. Added to top of my favorite coversion list and am able to delete several others.

Your calculator brings up Imperial units of measure in both drop downs. I tried it in Chrome and IE.
