I won't Bob, but I might just ask my 6'3" grandson to do it on my behalf.
On a serious note Bob, don't you really see the advantages of all woodworkers going metric. I'm sure you must remember the magnificent cabinet doors that Greg made and just wait to see the balloon clocks he's working on. Any template can be designed with ease using the metric system. Come on Bob make it the six of us, just imagine if all 12,000 members of just THIS forum petitioned the manufactures, you would be able to buy metric cutters at you're local grocery store.
