Rock M is correct, about measurements.
Now retired, I worked for over 45 years in engineering with mechanical switches, semiconductors, cell phone test systems, laser interferometers, DNA micro-arrays and, through all those years I did woodworking.
I used a lot of different measurements and worked through the time some U.S. companies moved to the metric system when all prints had to be dual dimensioned.

I use fractional inch, decimal inch, mm, cm, and even architectural rulers (like that shown below), it all depends on what I am doing!

Just don’t change horses, or rulers for that matter, in midstream!

These are helpful in making scale models of projects.
