    because it's more even, (i mean, 1/64th? that's just hard to picture) and you can use decimals more easily. With 32ths and 64ths you have to convert... unless it's half an inch or so.
    the metric system is way better... and since americans don't want to use it, I guess One has to be satisfied with inches divided in tenths.

    and since everyone that posted used decimals, I'm guessing they sell rulers with inches in tenths, since it would be less work to say what the ruler really says and not convert it.

    I use calipers that are accurate to .001 inch. At work everything we do is in thousanths of an inch.
    1 mm = .03937 inch.

    Alpha, check at a surveying supply store/company.

    Surveying is done using Inches and tenths. Hand drawn maps. etc.

    my biggest trap so far is a little of an 1". Keep in mind I've only had this for one month. I noticed that right after I fed all the traps, there was this mega blossom of one inch sized traps. too bad the season's ending already. :{

    This year has been a wash. Week after week of cold, foggy weather has left my vfts and sarras decidedly unenthusiastic. So, last year remains my banner year for traps. Here's a pic from last year's batch. This is a "green dragon" purchased originally right here at PFT. As you can see, it's just a tad bigger than 1 3/4":
