Topic tags/keywords: craftsmanspacecom rocking baby crade plan spindles metric conversion cradle

Good Morning,

thank you veterans for your service on this Veterans Day 2019.

I am going over the rocking baby cradle plan from and am doing the metric to imperial conversions. Just reaching out to see if anyone else did already to confirm my math.

Also, if anyone purchased spindles would like to know where to go for that. I am good on my lathe, but a bowl guy in addition to small pieces like bottle openers, stoppers, etc… Me trying to match 18 of them well is not likely, but I want to keep the original design concept intact.

any help is much appreciated.

keep making sawdust guys!

a little update: the plans actually do include english measure. apparently they note it as inches with the fraction in decimal followed by a comma, such as 1.5 = 1 1/2 inches. A lot of .79, .44, etc… used a decimal to fraction at 32nd of an inch tolerance. will see how well that works on assembly!
