How do I convert measurements in millimeters to inches?

Below are some approximate "millimeter to inches" conversions-
Millimeters 1.6mm 2.4mm 3.2mm 6.4mm 9.5mm 12.8mm







3/32" 1/8" 1/4" 3/8" 1/2"





* Millimeter measurements are rounded off to the nearest 10th.

•Example #1: If an item is 19 x 25mm...
it measures approximately 3/4" x 1".

•Example #2: If an item measures 5mm wide...
3.2mm + 1.6mm = 1/8" + 1/16" (see chart above)
so 5mm is about 3/16" wide.

•Example #3: If an item measures 32mm tall...
25.4mm + 6.4mm = 1" + 1/4" (see chart above)
so 32mm is about 1 1/4" tall.
