You are probably going to run into this time and time again. Best thing to do is get a ruler that has both inches and mm, centimeters. I use both sides all the time.

1" = 25.4 mm = 2.54 cm

That's all you gotta need to know.

Just get a decent ruler (the're available everywhere for about 50 cents and up) that has BOTH metric and your 1/16 stuff markings.......It's easier to just directly "read" the mm scale without introducing a likely math error (happens all the time with crummy fitting results) once you get used to the fact that a lot of popular planes ARE off-shore designed and the plans or instructions are likely to be mm's......Just do it and forget the calculator...I'm a S Side Va. anti-metric guy from way back but life forces changes sometimes....... kw

You can use google. It will do unit conversions. The syntax is:

X unit to unit.

Example: 55 mm to in

It's awesome!
