Searching for "mm"

Post by HarryT » Sun Jul 19, 2015 7:08 am

I often search for information about sizes of something (e.g. distance of holes in z-Plate, distance of pre-drilled holes for limit switches, ..) where I know that I have once seen it in the forum.

Therefore I try to use "mm" as one of the search-pattern. But it looks like "mm" is too short to be used as search-pattern.
Is there something like a work arround?

Learn something new every day in this forum and sometimes it doesn't even relate to CNC. Thanks for the tip, I didn't realize that labels were built into Google.

They're not. But, instead of the so-so search that comes with PHPBB, you're asking Google to do the search. It could be worse.
