tkay11 Posted December 3, 2015 Share #1 Posted December 3, 2015 This may well be a pointless question. Nevertheless, and just in case there is someone willing to humour me, I'll ask. It's whether for ship modelling there's any advantage to use a lathe or a mill in imperial rather than metric, seeing that the original plans are mostly in imperial measurements. An alternative to this question is its complementary one: why would one choose an imperial-based lathe or mill over a metric one? My suspicion is that it wouldn't make much difference, especially as scaling down by 1/48 or 1/64 will mostly involve decimals in either of the two systems. Any takers?
