```For the sake of accuracy the kg to pounds conversion is 2.2046. It makes
my example about a pound heavier and Sam's bell 0.6lb or about 9oz
heavier.

Multiply the Kgs by 2.2 to get pounds

Divide this by 112 to get hundredweight

Remember to the nearest quarter how many hundredweights you have and
subtract this.
(0.25 = 0-1-0, 0.5 = 0-2-0, 0.75 = 0-3-0)

Multiply the remainder by 112 to give the residual pounds.

Worked example:

237 Kg bell x 2.2 = 521.4 lbs

521.4 lbs / 112 = 4.655 cwt

4.655 cwt - 4.5 = 0.155 (4.5 = 4-2-0)

0.155 x 112 = 17.4

Therefore 237 kg = 4-2-17.4

Well that's how I do it, anyway!
