So you need to convert Imperial to Metric to Imperial?
Here's a handy PDF chart to help you along. Mainly for us that use Imperial units.

Re: So you need to convert Imperial to Metric to Imperial?
Or to do it without a chart, follow this simple rule:
To convert imperial to metric
, first convert any fraction to a decimal, then simply
multiply
by 25.4
e.g. 1/2" (half an inch) convert to fraction = 0.5" then multiply by 25.4 = 12.7mm
e.g. 0.375" (3/8" three eighths of an inch) multiplied by 25.4 = 9.525mm
To convert metric to imperial
, simply
divide
by 25.4
e.g. 10mm divided by 25.4 = 0.394"
e.g. 6.35mm divided by 25.4 = 0.25" (1/4" one quarter of an inch)
So imperial to metric,
multiply by 25.4
metric to imperial,
divide by 25.4

If you have a modern Android phone, just ask it. "Ok google, what's 25.4mm in inches?"
Very handy when cooking/soldering because you don't even need to touch your phone with messy hands.
