wrong. 15/32" is 0.46875" while 11.7mm converts to 0.46062992125984253" according to one place i looked.

I don't think it's an aerospace grade drywall anchor. I think a 0.008" tolerance will be acceptable.

did you read the other comment? must've missed the part where it said "pls correct me if I'm wrong"...

also, if op is using a drywall anchor in brick, something else is gonna happen regardless of the tolerances.

Sorry to interupt your hair splitting. Did you read op's post? Looks like a drywall anchor to me.

i didn't say it was or wasn't, i said if op was using a drywall anchor there something else was gonna happen. i don't know if they'll work, i use the correct things whenever i can. op also said tapcons were hard to come by down there. yeah, i read them all.

Found the pain in the ass engineer every tradesman hates.

Seriously, 8 thousandths of an inch is entering the territory of CNC machining, not hanging a hose reel.

I mean, technically he's right. If it truely were simply a 15/32" conversion it would have worked out to roughly 11.9mm.

Either they converted it wrong, or it wasn't originally 15/32"

Otherwise they would have stated 11.9mm instead of 11.7mm

when someone asks for folks to correct them if they;re wrong, why do others feel the need to say something about the correction? piss off.


AccidentallyUpvotes t1_ixzfqi3 wrote

"Correct me if I'm wrong" usually means one of two things;

  1. correct me if I'm wrong enough to make a material difference, or if it means my guidance would cause a problem if not corrected

  2. correct me if I'm wrong which I'm not, but I'm trying to be polite about it.

and? op makes a comment, asks for corrections, i give one, and you're upset about it. piss off loser.

Do you understand how small 0.008" is? A human hair is 0.003".

You're literally splitting hairs just so you can walk around pretending you're clever.

I think you should explain that you're OCD - like Rainman - to everyone, 'cause at this point you're just a jerk.
