Re: Lasts

Re: miscellaneous tips, advice, and cautions

<t>Tex, <br/> I do not belive there is anything wrong with the weight. You see, in Europe generally and in scandinavia particulary, we use "kilogram". I am sorry but I can not answer your question. Somebody, help us with a translation of these weights? 525 kilogram is just above half a kilo, that is...
