It's about 300,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness)
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 310,000 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000320 times that amount.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.011 shaftments in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about 400,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 422,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000002370 times that amount.
(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 5,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000000200 times 3,460 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 5,500,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair
In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.000000190 times 3,460 shaftments.
(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.
