Adding a bit - Metric

Hi, I am wondering what is the correct way to add a bit, they all seem to be in imperial measurements, and everything I do is metric. For example, I just measured a bit I have (for surfacing) No, I don’t have the original packaging. it measures 21mm (cut area). Can I enter that size into easel, or do I need to convert it to an imperial size?

If you are adding it to the library, yes you will need to divide by 25.4 to find the inch equivalent.

However IF you are entering as a temporary bit into the “other” section you can enter as metric or imperial shown here:

Thanx Seth, you are a legend with your replies and knowledge, so if I want to add it to my library, and I divide 6 x 25.4 I get 0.2362, is that what I put in?

Yes, that’s exactly how you enter it. Oh and Easel will only save 3 decimal places though, but no worries, it will round for you if you enter more :smiley: So you can round first, or you can let it round for ya. :+1:
