Rulers

The Imperial Inch ruler (blue lines) represents the final inch in a mixed fraction and is divided into 1/64' increments.
The whole inch portion of a mixed fraction is shown below the left most ruler mark

The marking indicator (red line) shows the position of the rounded fraction to an accuracy of 1/128' or less depending on the minimum fraction selected.


The Decimal ruler (grey) uses two scales:

  • 1/100' for inches and feet
  • 1mm increments for mm, cm and meters

The decimal marking indicator (black) shows the thousandth of an inch result of the measurement converted to decimal inches.


nuber entry

For metric conversions the scale shows the last 25.4mm (1 inch) of the measurement.
