Dude I love the washer page!! That's my kind of sad humor.
Oh I think it's universal. I mean really the basic are the same everywhere. The math doesn't change just the units. and the book has, at last glance, all the units. Tools are realativly universal except for that anooying habit the Brits have of calling them "Grips" and "Spanners" instead of Pliers and wrenches. < used to have a Triumph TR6 with a FULL set of shop manuals, Made me crazy at first, " Using a 10 mm spanner remove the nuts......" What the hell is a spanner? >
Yep...page 155, on Average Weights:
Average Weights of Beverages
Note: The beer dispenser known as a "keg" is actually a "half-keg" and there are approx. 250 glasses in a half-keg. There is also half size keg called a "quarter-keg."
Yeah back at you the other way round. Just what the hell is a crescent wrench.
I am about to start running some basic courses in stage craft and maybe I'll get a copy from Amazon (who will post to Oz) looks like it might be useful.
And the empire probably runs on Whitworth. (Yes I'm originally English and old enough to remember)
Actually over here it's not likely to be a zoom. There was a great article about the difference in lighting in last month's Stage Directions Magazine. I'll start a new thread in lighting with the link so as to not hijack this thread further.The different terminology is fascinating, it's taken me a while to work out what you are referring to as a leko. To me it's simply a model of zoom profile manufactured briefly by Strand not a generic name for a type of lantern. I'm comfortable with instrument, but I am likely to refer to lamps as bubbles and so on. Its a strange world ain't it.
