Note: There are discrepancies between the metric table on the previous page and the standard (ft and inch) table on this page. There is good reason for that, so use one or the other but do not mix and match - i.e., stick to either the metric system or the standard system throughout the project.
Some stock sizes vary between the two. Puzzled? For further explanation, go to the 'Explanations' page.
