    In my world, small means I could fit 20,000+ of them in the smallest USPS flat rate box. Medium is only about 1,000. Large would be 300ish.

    I have a friend who is 4'10. She refers to herself as "fun sized".

    "Large" is where I can't lift more than one into the machine, so 100 pounds or-so?
    Small: Barfeed it in the lathe.
    Medium: Help your buddy load it in the mill.
    Large: Use the crane, Dufas!!

    Small is shoulder fired, medium gets launched from nearby, large is dropped from a plane or fired from ship. Obviously.

    It's quite entertaining how one ambiguous question in post #1 can drive 25+ replies before the question in post #2 is answered!

    Oh, I don't mind it. I just think it's funny that the OP would ask a question and apparently never check back..
