I've gotta say that I've had metric tools in my box for many years. I still cringe a bit at having to break them out, but metrics are the way things will be. Right now the US is the only holdout to converting to metrics. They are easier to understand if you are learning from scratch. Think of it this way. 20 years from now , when you are the only guy in 100 miles that still has SAE tools,,,, how much would your services be worth to a guy with a 72 Shoveler?
I was born in 1947 . My Pan was born in 1950. My Evo was born in 1986. In 20 years I hope I can remember my name.
So I guess if we have to make the change to the metric system, I'll just keep my old stuff.
I have a 2004 Chevy Suburban.It has less then 30,000 on it.
It should last untill the Government tells me I can't drive it any more, because it only gets 20 mpg.
