 :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:
that would be 31,75 mm - and that cannot be right as they were produced in Europe
(and illustrating the "inches" thread to perfection)

Hey - I asked, I'm the audience, I understand 1 1/2"! ;D

I doubt they were actually precisely 1 1/2" unless Janice used a calliper to measure them.  Could round that 3/4 milimeter up and make it 32 mm, or even 3.5 cm.  ...Hey, using my calliper, I get 1 1/2" equals 38.2 mm, not 31.75.  (And what's this confusing European habit of using a comma in place of a decimal point all about? >:D)

I'm still waiting for a German speaker to confirm or correct the translation I attempted.

Okay, let's see.  Actually my wierd way of saying the size should have been 1.25", or 1 1/4"...how about 29 meters?  Does that help?  Take a look at the picture.

Careful if trying to land on Mars with those metres  ;D has to be millimeters.
1 mm = 1/1000 of a meter or  4/100 of an inch
