Well.... The Murican inch may be 25.4 mm (or 25.39whatever). The DANISH inch, however, is 26 mm. Just thought I'd point that out. I actually have a tape measurer that measures in cm and Danish inches.

Ya know. I think there's a reason the world has converted to the metric system. Now we just need the US, Liberia, and Myanmar to catch up.

I still have one. It's an old drafting ruler. The first inch is divided into 100ths.

Comes from having a big "foot" (fod), about 313.85 mm (12.356 inches) more or less over centuries.

Most of my rulers include graduations of tenths of an inch so I researched the topic and found the following.

Decimal rulers can be based on both the Imperial system and the Metric system.

Decimal rulers using inches normally have graduations of 0.1" and 0.01".

Is it not true that NASA put men on the moon using decimals of an inch?

I seem to recall having a wooden ruler in the 1960s which had both tenths and sixteenths of an inch, in different places of course.
