Let's go metric! Although the U.S. never made the conversion this set would come in handy as either a resource as some vintage memorabilia.

The ruler is in great shape with no scratches or wear. Made in the USA by Sterling. The center of the ruler slides so that you can make the necessary conversions in length with the sliding marker and also pulls all the way out to flip it around for volume measurements.

The reversible paper metric converter, made in 1976, is also in great shape. Inner piece slides to make just about any conversion you may want. Need to know how many quarts in a liter? How about how many meters in a yard? It's got you covered. Even temperature and cooking measurements are on there.

This set would be helpful in the kitchen for reading recipes with metric measurements. Or would be great for someone moving abroad to a place with different measurement system than their own. It's lo-fi, so when your smart phone isn't getting a signal you can get some metric answers.

I try my best to estimate shipping costs, if there is a difference of more than a dollar, I will refund you back the difference. I hate to pay shipping cost too, so I like to keep it a low as possible.

Will also ship outside of the US, just contact me so I can set up a shipping quote.
