It's for after Brexit
How on earth can anything be described as Professional and not have the actual measurements we work in :/

Metric professional and scientific.... Imperial is for the witch burners/dunkers lol.

It says "GLM30" on the front. There is no way that a German company would make 'imperial only'!

I was surprised too. You can disagree all you like, but it seems they have according to the amazon listing. Look at the spec sheet for the different models on the drop down menu - metric is £77, imperial is £44 and they are both GLM30. Bosch's words, not mine!

Update: I've just downloaded the user manual from the Bosch website and there is an option to change the units, amazon seller has just used a confusing method to list the items!

When the unit is off you hold down the only button for a few seconds then it will give you the option to change to metric.

Nah, metric is for people who struggle with anything more than basic mathematics.

Ah the anti science brigade then.

Why should we need to expand the mind for meausuring!!! They're far more important matters to put our knowledge towards.

That's not a fair comment Scott, I didn't consciously poohpooh any type of science.

Anyway, it's far more complex than just expanding the mind for measuring. Give it a go.

Have you been enjoying the bank holiday joviality a little excessively?

Maybe if you did try expanding your mind using the Imperial system it may help with your grammar.

No, it's a mass. Weight is a force (m x g), whether you're dealing with metric (N) or imperial (lbf) units! So much for your knowledge of science...

A pound is a scalar and is a measurement of mass, end of.

To calculate weight, g (gravity) is the acceleration (9.81m/s2 from memory of teaching aerodynamics for about 10 years). So no, you haven't disproved anything, you've just confirmed your lack of knowledge.

Oh, and standard notation for acceleration is 'a' , not 'A'.

A 1000lb car applies 1000lb force to its brakes.... Mass is both???.

No it's clearly a mass and a force.... And the fact it has to be declared show's a weakness in the imperial system.

The alternative is a 1000kg car applies 1000N force to its brakes.

Yes, my bad with the A/a, sorry.

There are many types of "pound" which only complicate the matter and lets not even get on to Slugs.

Pound (lb) is an imperial unit of mass. Pounds-force (lbf) is an imperial unit of force. A lb only becomes a force when you apply an acceleration.

Kg is the SI unit of mass. It too only becomes a force when you apply an acceleration - kgm/s2, SI unit is the Newton.

Newton's laws don't change just becauseyou change the units of measure...

And your car example doesn't work, the mass of a car does not apply anything to its brakes.

lb t?. (troy) which I believe is a precious metal measure.
Read it again, it's the letter F for force, not a T!!

41793676.jpg
Even though you misread the letter F as a t, in the context of scientific principles why on earth would you think of t relating to troy and not time?! Either this is a wind-up, or I'm debating with a 6 year old. Goodnight.
