    Nathan was so angry he was going to fire the guy. The other guy just didn’t want to be noticed.

    Thanks PocketBrain, - Yes I agree, doing engineering calculations in SI units is a WHOLE LOT EASIER than using Imperial units. I know of one engineer (in the US) who preferres to use Imperial umits (get a load of that) - go figure that one - its beyond me !!!

    While I apprecaite “Stilldavids” response, - I thing the units will be g/mm (the imperial units given are oz/inches) as the motor is producing a torque (thus it is a moment). Joules are units of energy, thus not applicable.

    I note RobertC is deafiningly quiet on this issue - I wonder if he understands it?

    Robert,

    Thank you for answers to points 1 and 2.

    Your answer to point 3 can best be described as muddled. Firstly I know what a unit is (I’m an engineer). Secondly, I understand unit conversion (I’m an engineer!!). What you mean by “lossy” (sic) is beyond me. Finally you failed to comprehend and thus answer the question, (i.e. point 3) so your response gave no useful information. The US is one (of a VERY small number of countries) that are still stuck with the Imperial measurement system, the rest of the world (thus a great many of your customers!!!) uses the logical and easy to use SI Measurement system, (commonly known as the metric system).

    Sir (Sparkfun Engineer),

    1) I notice the specs say “Direction: Clockwise/ Pulse Traveling 1500-1900usec” - does that mean it will not rotate in reverse?

    2) Can you remove a stop to make the servo rotate 360 degrees?

    3) I know the US is still stuck with the Imperial measurement system but could you please also include the metric equavilents for all specifications (for example torque)? - for the benefit of the rest of us (namely most of the rest of the world).

    Nathan had not planned for the rapid expansion of Sparkfun, so staff were forced to find innovative ways to utilise the limited office space

    Steve didn’t know that a crash helmet was required to race
