I worked at an AC/NH/NI/Brillion/etc/etc/ dealer '72-'84. They sold several of the NH combines. I could never figure out why. I hated working on them with a passion. They were my first experience with metrics. And after working on simple Gleaners, they were a nightmare!

why is working with metric any different than standard???? the nuts and bolts have the same rotation thread, just you need a different wrench...

I had all the standard bolt, nut, wrench size combinations right in my head, and of course had the tools. I had none of that with metrics.

I see what you mean Bob... i grew up in the UK and worked on machines that i swear were made using both metric and standard stuff... then on the older stuff, especially pre war stuff, they"d have whitworth nuts and bolts... try finding a wrench to fit that...
