Chart of metric and SAE socket sizes in the proper order?

I've been doing some Googling, but can't find a chart or listing of Metric and SAE sockets listed in order of size. I'm looking for such a thing to make it easier to pick sockets out to try on rounded bolts (like using a 13/16" on a 21mm bolt will give you another crack at it.)

Just take the SAE number in inches and multiply by 25.4 to convert inches to mm.

Edit: you just suck @ google.

http://www.accuratescrew.com/info/MetricSizes.htm bottom of the page. FIRST HIT when I searched "SAE to metric socket table"

Welcomes

Best I can do is tell you that there are exactly 25.4 mm in an inch, so you can figure stuff out that way.

Did these real quick cause they're common ones I use... You get the idea

1/4" = 6.35
5/16" = 7.9375
3/8" = 9.525
7/16" = 11.1125
1/2" = 12.7
9/16" = 14.2875
5/8" = 15.875
11/16" = 17.4625
3/4" = 19.05
13/16" = 20.6375
7/8" = 22.225
15/16" = 23.8125
1" = 25.4
1 1/16" = 26.9875
1 1/8" = 28.575
1 1/4" = 31.75
1 5/16" = 33.3375



Edit: fuck, b10, but I did the work for you

Heh, thanks guys. Now I just need to go pick up some more sockets and hopefully get this project done today.

Ok guy, sure thing!

Roughly 97% of my tool usage is SAE, and I have absolutely no trouble whatsoever remembering what size comes before or after or two sizes down or whatever. You learned your multiplication table by remembering all the different answers, right? Well how hard is it to learn the SAE sizes?

To put it simply, those who have trouble working with SAE tools are too stupid to be working with tools in the first place.

No, the metric system is not better, and I don't use it because I don't need to use it.

the metric system is spaced to far apart, with sae you can use the next size down on a stripped fastner and it will take it off, and a next size up on a super rusted fastner

Heh. I also belong to the crowd that only uses SAE sockets for removing stripped metrics and working on the lawnmower.
