No. Please don't. We were not all born in Acronymland. Some of us speak real English. Consider what it costs to type a few extra letters. [:p] I prefer real words. Yes, I have fallen into the trap also. But, from here on, it is real words only for me.

Thanks Jim. Just used this info as an exam for pen turning. Had the students go to this site and look them up and then I gave them a test. Great teaching tool.

How about stretching this into tools specific Acronyms. I find myself writing newbies withthe back of my brain going. O.K. bozo just how much of this is greek to them.
12X24 in the context of a lathe means it will hold or turn a 12 inch diameter piece of wood.(without the tool rest on the lathe) that is 24 inches long.
T.P.I. threads/tips/ or teeth per inch depending on wether you are taking. bolts/pipe/or sawblades.
P.S.I. pound per Square Inch in pressure.
just an example see what all of you can do with the rest.

Uh. oh! I've fallen a little ways into the trap. [:p] Shouldn't this topic really be titled: GOAASNOIAPS ? [?][:o)]
