I've never been sure what you (in America) call them, but we (in Britain)
still call them "Imperial".

Of course, there are many different standards for screw threads within the
imperial system, though I think the same spanners work with all of them:


Certainly that's a field where multiple standards coexist. It would be
better if there was only one, but that isn't always achievable.
