Any chance you're keen on making a metric version for non-US folk?

Hope this works for you! Let me know how it goes.

11-in-1 Calibration Block (Metric)

Thanks so much! Moving over to the other thread now.
Will attempt it tonight (and post my failure/success).

I'm still on a good old manual calliper for now :)

Just noticed the labels for some of the hole sizes are in the wrong order on the metric version. i'm fixing them now and will upload the new one in a bit.

I'll see what I can do. Although if you're using a decent caliper, there should be an English/ metric button to convert units.

I was amazed how nice this turned out, after calibrating.

It would be nice to know what the overall dimensions of the block are supposed to be, though. The length in particular--width must be 1 inch, height 1.25 inch, could length be 3 3/8?

I'm glad it functioned well for you. The overall length is 3.3742'' x 1'' x 1.265''
I'll upload a fix with nominal dimensions- not sure how that slipped me. Thanks!
