Surface finish conversion metric to English standard
I am a sales engineer for my company and am quoting a brass part for a customer. The part is in metric dimensions. On an internal bore there is a requirement to maintain a surface finish of N5.
I have checked the Machinery's Handbook and could not find the information I need.
I need an RMS surface finish equivalent for N5.
