The only valid point I have seen is about the fence guide being in Imperial units.

If you change blades you would also need to reset the zero on the fence.

18mm is 0.70866, while these-days 3/4" is actually 23/32 or 0.71875

This can be a big deal if making rabbets or dadoes.

Good point!
1" = 2.54cm or 25.4mm.
0.75" = 1.905cm or 19.05mm

For most of us unit conversion would be a long winded process, and the effort involved would be the same regardless of who did it. Maybe that is part of the D I Y ethos. DO IT (for) YOURSELF, and then maybe document and share.

Hi guys

Long time since being here.

I will give the conversion a try in Solidworks, it might be that when I change the dimensions of the material I can make an imperial version very easily.

As Schwarzenegger would say "I'll be back !"

To enter a length, area or volume value in Imperial inch or foot units, press F6 in edit mode when the relevant input parameter has the focus.

Kind regards,
