We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Let's say the roll is 60"w.

Grams in 1 oz = 0.03527 g/oz
M^2 in 1 Yd^2 = 0.836127 m^2/yd^2

Formula: oz/yd^2 = g/m^2 * 0. 03527 g/oz * 0.836127 m^2/yd^2.

The width is 60”, over 1 linear yard. To get oz per linear yard (with a width of 60”), we need to convert width/inches to width/yards so: 60” / 36” = 1.6667. (Note: this way, you can change the width from 60” to any width you need). Plug this into the above formula, so:

oz/lin yd @ 60” wide = g/m^2 * 0. 03527 g/oz * 0.836127 m^2/yd^2 * 1.667 width/yards.

You can simplify this for a 60" width by multiplying known factors together,

Simplified formula: oz/lin.yard @ 60” = g/m^2 * 0.04916

Example: If you have 100 g/m^2: 100 * 0.04916 = 4.916 oz/linear yard @ 60” wide
