Job Site Language/Measurement Conversions

Postby whizerd » Wed Aug 11, 2004 6:38 pm

My son recently had his crew become larger when his company added three new guys; all with great masonry, construction and architectural experience. However they dont speak the language!

I was wondering whether you guys would know of product (handheld calculator?) that he could use in order to get measurement info across to the them accurately?

Thanks!

If your son has access to a palm pilot I would recommend a program called "Converter v2.2" availalble at http://www.mattmarsh.net/computing/palmpilot.shtml. This is a "Freeware" program that I use every day. I highly recommend it.

Another option, and perhaps a better one for the construction industry, would be one of the construction calculators put out by Calculated, Inc. They are available at most home improvement stores, like Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Etc.

A couple of examples are the ProjectCalc Plus (http://calculated.com/products/8525.html), and the Construction Master Pro (http://calculated.com/products/4060.html?construction)
