Most of the trades in Australia work in mm. and / or metres, cm. are not used.

Ex : a kitchen benchtop is 900mm high, a passage door is 2100mm or 2.1m. high. Dual metric / imperial tapes can’t be read from both sides. Timber is sold by the cube or M3

My wife used to be in the rag trade, she works in cm. We have a hard time communicating sometimes.

-- Mama calls me Texcaster but my real name is Mr. Earl.
