    Interesting that in 1951 a 127 tooth gear was an exclusive feature. Guess that after WWII since we were the dominant worldwide manufacturer there was no thought given to metric. Different frame of mind from us 1960 and later generations.

    Korean War production ran largely off existing War Two - and prior - clear back even to War ONE - machine-tools.

    By the time the "Cold War" followed, NEW (jet age) aerospace-centric biz got the newest and best, segued into NC then CNC.

    Manual US-made machine-tool makers mostly just DIED as the auto industry went over to metrifuckation, offshoreing, and importing major components as well as entire vehicles, then factories to build all that HERE.

    IOW - few "manuals" LIVED long enough to have the NEED of both systems.

    Europe, by contrast, "I/M" was actually rather common, and had been for scores of years.
    One supposes that was driven for the need of British goods support, rather than US.
