Please Help!

I am getting frustrated presenting this chart with nothing but rejection handed back.

Can anyone tell me what the tolerance chart would look like in the decimal equivelance for +/- 1/16in.

.x = .?
.xx = .??
.xxx = .???
.xxxx = .????


Thank you ahead of time for all the help.

If I understand the question, try this.

fractional = .062
.x = .1
.xx = .03
.xxx = .010
.xxxx = .001
Unless otherwise stated

( 1/16 would be .0625)

bye the way, to get the sign, hold down the Alt key while typing 241.

If you dimension a distance as <- 3-1/16 -> you are saying with the above chart that because it is a fractional dimension, the tradesman has .062 tolerance. Meaning; the distance can be from 3" to 3-1/8".


If you dimension a distance as <- 3.125 -> you are saying the tradesman has .01 tolerance. Meaning; the distance can be from 3.115" to 3.135". This is because the dimension has 3 digits after the decimal point, thus the .XXX

Does that help?
