You should be really happy the British did away with measurement systems like 'Whitworth'. Some sizes were closer to SAE, some were closer to ISO, some only fit the old Ford sizes like 19/32" It made working on your Norton a real cluster.

Forget about thread repairs, except maybe with a file.

These are not perfect matches but they will usually get you by. The 13 is a bit loose on a 1/2" and 14 can be hard to get on a new 9/16.
If you are getting into stuff bigger than that then you probably should have dedicated tools.
8mm is the same as 5/16
11/16 doesn't fit very well on a 17mm
3/4 & 19mm are the same, I have a snap on socket with both numbers on it.
Anything 24mm and up there is an inch size that fits as well as the metric. All of my sockets over 24mm are inch size and I worked on metric cars all my working life. The inch sizes were cheaper than metric on the tool trucks.

I beg to differ, 18mm and 3/4 are very close, 3/4 is the larger. Its what I use if I misplace my 18mm and it a little bit loose

You can beg all you want but 3/4 & 19mm are almost identical. 3/4" is .750", 19mm is .760".

Ok, I will give you that, I know I've used 3/4 in place of 18mm, never tried it in place of 19mm, I did say it was a tad larger than the 18, but have used several times. I haven't used 19mm very often

Made me curious, 18mm is actually. 708 inches,
19mm is .748 , almost exactly 3/4. I have to convert between the 2 daily at work, I run a press brake so the dimensions are critical on a lot of jobs. Never used that outside of work until tonight, lol

F is a smaller unit so your thermostat would be more accurate. Except is not. The thermostats have a dwelling that help you select when to start and when to stop. Dont know if I said it right. Suppose you set the thermostat at 68 F for heat. You could adjust the dwell so it starts when temp is 3/10 billow setting and stops at 3/10 over the setting. or your heat pump, boiler etc would go nuts

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

I just round off 1mm =.040, easier to calculate in my head.

Hysteresis is the term you were looking for. You set your thermostat for 70 degrees. Furnace kicks on at 69 degrees, runs until 71 degrees and shuts off. Doesn't kick on again until 69 degrees. That would be a hysteresis of two degrees. (which would be a pretty sloppy thermostat)

I use the 3/4 inch / 19mm tools interchangeably all the time! And 9/16 / 14mm.

Your talking operation of a system, I'm talking temperature measurement. C has 100 divisions between freezing water and boiling water, F has 180 division.
