It's about 50,000,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.00000002080 times 393,701 shaftments.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0082 shaftments. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 99.10 shaftments in height.
It's about 600,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper.
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.00000000200 times 393,701 shaftments.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0007 shaftments thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about 600,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair.
In other words, 393,701 shaftments is 610,000,000 times the length of a Strand of Hair, and the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.00000000160 times that amount.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.

It's about 8,000,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.000000000130 times 393,701 shaftments.
(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles) An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
It's about 10,000,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
