Relevant abbreviations and calculations


Mm = millimeters. 

There are 25.4 millimeters in an inch.


Column A:  The actual measurement of the smallest diameter of this double flare gauge.

Column B:  Column A measurement in inches (calculated by dividing measurement A by 25.4 mm per inch.)  Example: 12 mm/25.4mm per inch yields .47 inches)

Column C: Column B measurement rounded to a fraction

Column D:  What column C fraction would be in hundredths of an inch (calculated by top number of column C divided by bottom number of column C)  Example: for the 12 mm row, 1 divided by two is .5 or .50 inches.

Column E:  The difference between column B and column D.


How to use this chart:


Q: I am currently wearing ⅞” gauges.  How different would the fit of 22 mm gauges be?


A: ⅞ ince is about .86mm, and 22mm gauges are about .87”diameter.  Looking in column E, you’ll see that the difference between ⅞”gauges and 22mm gauges is 0.01” or one one-hundreth of an inch.  For most people, a difference of several hundredths of a mm is not noticeable.
