Oven Temperatures

Ok so another thing I am always having to look up is oven temperatures, I have a electric oven and its very old 11 years to be exact. I have had this since me and my partner got together so in all fairness its owes us nothing and even though it is old and sometimes does not get the right temp (must invest in a oven thermometer) there is just one thing I wish it had is a glass door so that I don't have to keep opening the door and checking on things as I never used to bake so much. So here is a conversion that I go by.

o'C           o'F          Gas Mark
120          250           1/2
140          275            1
150          300            2
160          315           2-3
170          325            3
180          350            4
190          375            5
200          400            6
210          415           6-7
220          425            7
230          450            8
240          475            9

I constantly come across with recipes that call for a cup, and I think what size cup are you using because to me a cup is big but you get those little ones. Then there is the American recipes that call for a stick of butter and I think well how much is a stick of butter. Then there is Australia a table spoon is 20ml but our tablespoons are 15ml.
So here are my conversions

Cup conversions
1 cup of plain/self raising flour, cornflour, custard powder, grated chocolate, raisins, sultanas, icing sugar  = 125g/ 4oz
1 cup butter, passion fruit pulp, caster/granulated sugar  = 250g/8 oz
1 cup desiccated coconut = 90g/3 oz
1 cup flaked coconut = 60g/2 oz
1 cup currents, chopped chocolate, chocolate melts/buttons, = 150g/5 oz
1 cup chopped glace fruit = 240g/7 1/2 oz
1 cup chocolate chips = 175g/6 oz
1 cup hazelnuts = 140g/4 1/2 oz
1 cup chopped hazelnuts = 120g/4 oz
1 cup ground hazelnuts = 110g/3 1/2 oz
1 cup ground almonds, mixed peel = 185g/6 oz
1stick of butter is 4 oz

Liquid Cup Conversions
1/4 cup = 60ml = 2 fluid oz
1/3 cup = 80ml = 2 3/4 fluid oz
1/2 cup = 125ml = 4 fluid oz
3/4 cup = 185ml = 6 fluid oz
1 cup = 250ml = 8 fluid oz

here is my grams to oz (not sure if its right or not but it works for me)
10g = 1/4 oz
30g = 1 oz
60g = 2 oz
90g = 3 oz
125g = 4 oz
150g = 5 oz
185g = 6 oz
220g = 7 oz
250g = 8 oz
275g = 9 oz
300g = 10 oz
330g = 11 oz
375g = 12 oz
400g = 13 oz
425g = 14 oz
475g = 15 oz
500g =  1 lb
600g = 1 1/4 lb
650g = 1 lb 5 oz
750g = 1 1/2 lbs
1kg = 2 lbs
