Old Russian machinists units......

Postby MN 91/30 » Tue Jan 06, 2004 7:30 am

I have an unusual request, can someone please help me with the Russian units? I understand the arshin being approximately 17cm, what did the Russian machinists use for 10ths, 100ths and 1000ths in the machine shop. I've read that they used a measurement for the 10th called the line or linea. If someone can help me with the Russian units that will be very helpful. Thank you....MN 91/30 :idea: :?:

There is a section "Old Russian" on the Distance and Length conversion page. There are 13 units mentioned, including line.
