    Why must I deal with this 1/4" inherent to the eccentric spacer? We're all working in millimeters and the only inches are in your spacers. What is the mad logic perpetuating this dissonance?

    I feel your pain Andrew - perhaps one day we will all be working to the same units of measurement but I wouldn't want to hold my breath. :)

    I hear you too @andrew and the short answer is different manufactures deal in different units so it makes it hard to stick with one all the time, but we try as much as possible.

    Maybe its time to relabel the spacers 6.35mm. ;)
