Not being an Electrical Engineer, I would think that a Digital Caliper could be calibrated to read out in half inch increments on each scale. Thus reading as 1'- 3" or 1'- 3 1/2". I believe that . 002 is 1/2" in HO and .004 is 1/2" in O, or am I wrong?
Yep, way wrong. You can calculate it, you know.
