Length Fraction Calculator

Length Fraction Calculator


Given either inches or millimeters, calculates the closest inches in fraction form, round up or down.

Why? Well have you ever been at the store and your project needs a 10mm bolt but you can't find it in metric. Take out Length Fraction Calculator type in 10mm and you find that you either need a 3/8" bolt if you want to go smaller or a 7/16" bolt if you need the next size up.

Also great if you have a digital caliper and it gives you numbers like 3.2423".

Great BUT The only one that makes fractions easy. What it really needs to be oerfect is a fine scroll or magnifier or something. My big clunky fingers have a hard time zeroing in on exactly where I want to be. On the bright side the competition is nonexistant for an app which does metric to fractions. IE: 5mm wrench is too small, 6mm too big, hmmm maybe english. Do I have 0.22 wrench? Use this app....oh...7/32 will fit. GREAT little app.

Very useful for makers! Simple. And just what you needed if you're measuring and cutting material. I found it extremely helpful when dividing a measurement into equal fractions.

Conversion chart or actual ruler? My first thought is this a conversion chart or an actual ruler to hold things up and measure? Apparently a conversion chart. First thing I did was to check the accuracy of this ruler as most folks would want to do and was not accurate at all. 1 inch came out as 2 and something fractions. Did not see a way to calibrated it. That's why the 4 stars. If it's a conversion chart it should say so in the description then the rating would be higher.

Add a adjustable tune button, for better control. And this will be great. John S. A/R Machinist
