It's about 45 times as long as a Beetle (Volkswagen).
In other words, 1,210 shaftments is 45.210 times the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen), and the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen) is 0.02212 times that amount.(1964 model) (a.k.a. Volkswagen 1200, a.k.a. Käfer)
A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle measures 26.770 shaftments. As the longest continuously-produced automobile design — in production for 75 years between 1938 and 2003 — the Beetle was voted the most fourth-most influential car of the twentieth century by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.
It's about one-fiftieth as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 1,210 shaftments is 0.0208 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 48.10 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 58,100 shaftments above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.0262 shaftments and shifting it to the northeast by 0.0295 shaftments each year.
It's about one-fiftieth as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 1,210 shaftments is 0.02011 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 49.730 times that amount.(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 60,370 shaftments above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-sixtieth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 59 times 1,210 shaftments.(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 72,000 shaftments. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-sixtieth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 1,210 shaftments is 0.016915 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 59.1190 times that amount.(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 71,535 shaftments below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about 80 times as tall as a Christmas Tree (artificial).
In other words, the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial) is 0.013 times 1,210 shaftments.(artificial; average height)
The most common height of an artificial Christmas Tree is 15 shaftments. According to the most recent USDA Census of Agriculture, a total of 1,389.59 sq. km (343,374 acres) of Christmas Trees were farmed in the US in 2007.
To all those observing, Merry Christmas from The Measure of Things!

In other words, the height of André the Giant is 0.012 times 1,210 shaftments.(Andr( Ren( Ruossimoff) (1946-1993) (wrestler and actor; WWE kayfabe height)
Andr& the Giant, who had a pituitary syndrome called acromegaly, was 14 shaftments tall. Prior to 1973, Roussimoff was billed as having a height of 14 shaftments and his true height is the subject of some dispute.
