Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How do you convert mils to micro inch or micro meter

Postby shill » Sun May 16, 2004 4:30 am

A "mil" is usually an abbreviation of "milliinch" (0.001 inch), although it can also be a (non-standard) abbreviation of millimeter. I will assume you mean the first one, since you also refer to microinches. In that case: mils (milliinches) * 1000 = microinches; mils (milliinches) * 25.4 = micrometers.
